I think he only posted them to his blog and no-one had the time to
integrate them. SUN compiler support wasn't that high on the agenda and
only very few people (including myself) had access to the SUN compilers,
and not necessarily the latest versions either. Not to mention that the
older compilers are a tad quirky..

Nah, I'm trying to port his patches to 1.34 RC in what little spare time
I have.. At the moment I'm concentrating on getting Boost.Python to
compile (he hasn't got any patches for that) but I'm kinda waiting until
I'm back from holiday to continue that as the latest patch set for the
compiler should be available by then. This supposedly fixes another lot
of compilation issues. I'm lazy :-) and I'm happy to wait that long..
