There's no toolset description for sun in your user-config.jam.
Notice this message:

and this.

Basically Boost.Build is saying there's no user-config.jam so it's
defaulting to gcc (your system's default gcc seems to be version 3.4.3).

Here's what some of my user-config.jam look like (and you may need to
implement a patch_boost script to copy user-config.jam into the
correct locations).

using gcc
   : 3.4.6
   : /usr/local/bin/g++
   : <cflags>"-mcpu=v9"

using sun
   : 5.10
   : /opt/sunstudio12.1/bin/CC
   : <cflags>"-features=tmplife -features=tmplrefstatic"
     <cxxflags>"-features=tmplife -features=tmplrefstatic"
     <linkflags>"-features=tmplife -features=tmplrefstatic"

Hope that helps.
