but finally came up with a fix in ?boost/config/compiler/sunpro_cc.hpp?.

Thanks, it looks like that file has become rather out of date, I've attached
a version with your patch applied and the header generally cleaned up,
however this may have resulted in some needed macros for sun 5.5 becoming
undefined (the only ones defined now are the ones you specified). Can you
please give this a try with your compiler, in particular can you try and


Many thanks,
