|          find_if (d.begin(), d.end(), ptr_fun(isspace<char>));

The code is wrong because it pulls in two version of isspace
  * one in <cctype> -- the traditional C function;
  * another in <locale> -- the C++ only version that takes two
       arguments: the locale and the character.

and then is trying to use the second version in place of the first.

Try to add

     struct Isspace {
        bool operator()(int c) const { return isspace(c); }

and try

      find_if (d.begin(), d.end(), Isspace());

Also hae a look at:
