Have you noticed that you haven't at any point specified the actual
string you were supposedly looking for? Does it not surprise you?

Make it:

struct Comparator {
    Comparator(const string& s) : compare_to(s) {}

    bool operator()(const _myval& v) const {
        return v.dst_val == compare_to;
    string compare_to;

std::list<_myval>::iterator it =
    find_if(g_MyvalList.begin(), g_MyvalList.end(), Comparator("xyz"));

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not
necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are going to
land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly
overhead. -- RFC 1925
