This is what you needed to do for boost 1.33.1 to get it to compile
with Studio 12:

see the README.Solaris file.

I haven't tried building more recent boosts with since then.

You can build most of boost 1.40.0 with Studio 12 [ with the latest
patches ] and the Apache Standard C++ Library 4.2.1, which is
available in Solaris/Nevada builds, but not in Solaris 10.

There are several boost libraries which do not compile with either
Studio 12 or Studio 12 Update 1, even with the Apache Standard C++
Library combination above. One library which pops in my mind right now
is Boost.Interprocess -- it requires C++0x compiler features [ rvalue
refs ], and this feature is not yet available with Sun Studio.

You can build recent boosts with GCC 4.3.x on Solaris. Please keep in
mind that GCC C++ binaries are ABI incompatible with Sun Studio C++
binaries, and you will not be able to mix and match compilers.
