template: no matching function call. Converting const value to constreference.

template <typename ContainerType>
ContainerType rsa_encrypt_list(const std::string&, const typename
ContainerType::reference, const typename ContainerType::reference);

const BigInteger e(boost::lexical_cast<BigInteger>(rsa_encrypts[2]));
const BigInteger
n(boost::lexical_cast<BigInteger>(rsa_encrypts[1]));
std::string infile(rsa_encrypts[0]);
boost::scoped_ptr<boost::filesystem::ifstreamencry pt_input(new
boost::filesystem::ifstream(infile));
const std::string
plaintext(std::istreambuf_iterator<char>(encrypt_i nput->rdbuf()),
std::istreambuf_iterator<char>());
std::list<BigInteger>
decrypted_list(encryptcpw::rsa_encrypt_list<std::l ist<BigInteger>
>(plaintext, e, n)); // this is line 64.
std::vector<BigInteger>(ciphertext).swap(ciphertex t);
// ... some code in between.
const std::string answer(encryptcpw::rsa_decrypt_list(ciphertext, d,
n)); // this is line 102.

Conversion loses qualifiers

Anybody know how to fix this.

I believe the problem is here:

template <typename ContainerType>
ContainerType rsa_encrypt_list(const std::string&, const typename
ContainerType::reference, const typename ContainerType::reference);

... you can't const-qualify ContainerType::reference; Comeau online
gives warning "warning: type qualifiers are meaningless in this
declaration"

you need instead:
template <typename ContainerType>
ContainerType rsa_encrypt_list(const std::string&, typename
ContainerType::const_reference, typename
ContainerType::const_reference);

and define const_reference in your ContainerType(s) accordingly.
