Finally managed an attempt at building 1.34 RC with the latest patch set
for SUN Studio 11 and run the tests against type_traits. For both build
& test I used bjam v1, not v2 as I'm not yet familiar with v2 and the
sunpro-tools.jam file I'm using is a tad different from the one in the
distribution. My jam file based on a bunch of patches that Simon
Atanasyan published in his blog for 1.32 and generally achieves better
build and test results than the one that comes with Boost as that one is
missing a couple of important flags. I'll prepare a patch tonight and
would hope that it'll make it into 1.34...

Anyway, the test results don't look that good - 11 failures and 15
targets skipped because it failed to build a couple of tests
(test_extent and rank_test failed to build, a quick trawl through the
test output suggests that several of the is_<something>_test case fail
as well, namely is_object_test, is_member_func_test and
is_reference_test. I'll try to provide full output in the next couple of
