error when passing iterator to template function

Hi -

I'm using "g++ (GCC) 3.4.5 20051201 (Red Hat 3.4.5-2)"

I suspect I'm doing something wrong, and I'm sure this is a FAQ, but a
few hours of reading and googling has not turned anything up.

I'm simply trying to pass an iterator to a template function. Here is
a simplified example that still has the error I'm seeing. I get
(approximately) the same error with g++ 3.2.3, 3.3.6 and 3.4.5

#include <vector>

template <class T>
void one(typename std::vector<T>::iterator it)

int main(int ac, char **av)
   std::vector<int> v(10);
   return 0;

> g++ test.cpp
test.cpp: In function `int main(int, char**)':
test.cpp:12: error: no matching function for call to
`one(__gnu_cxx::__normal_iterator<int*, std::vector<int,
std::allocator<int> > >)'

Any help would be appreciated.
