Subject: [boost] boost libraries and libCstd

the SUN compiler comes with two C++ standard libraries: libCstd and

libCstd is the 'old' version of the C++ libraries which has not all
features of the standard implemented.
The differences are described here:
The linked page also describes workarounds.

My question now is, does BOOST officially support libCstd? And if yes,
are there macros (#define's) defined to choose the appropriate code
(standard or workaround) within the boost library code?

The backround: the program_options library and probably some others do
not compile/link with libCstd. This is described e.g. in Ticket #3190).

Thanks in advance,
