Support for the Apache C++ Standard Library 4.2.1 was introduced with
Sun Studio 12.1 and higher. It can be enabled by passing
-library=stdcxx4 to the compiler. This flag is a no-op if the library
is not installed on the system (it must be installed separately).

The library is currently available on Solaris 11 Express only --
released in November this year. It may [ very likely will ] also be
available in a future Solaris 10 Update release.

If anyone is interested in testing Boost with Apache stdcxx on Solaris
10, and need Solaris 10 [ any version ] packages for the stdcxx
library, please contact me privately. It is also possible to use
Apache stdcxx with Sun Studio 12.
