Member istreambuf_iterator<>::equal is not declared "const", yet [istreambuf.iterator::op==] says that operator==, which is const, calls it. This is contradictory.
In 22.6.3 [istreambuf.iterator] and also in 99 [istreambuf.iterator::equal], replace:
bool equal(istreambuf_iterator& b);
bool equal(const istreambuf_iterator& b) const;
