That's probably because of the __SUNPRO_CC workaround at addressof.hpp line

#if (defined( __BORLANDC__ ) && BOOST_WORKAROUND( __BORLANDC__,
BOOST_TESTED_AT( 0x610 ) ) ) || defined( __SUNPRO_CC )

    return boost::detail::addressof_impl<T>::f( v, 0 );


    return boost::detail::addressof_impl<T>::f(
boost::detail::addr_impl_ref<T>( v ), 0 );


I assume that defined( __SUNPRO_CC ) needs to be changed to

defined( __SUNPRO_CC ) && BOOST_WORKAROUND( __SUNPRO_CC, < something )

but it's been a while since we stopped testing on this compiler so I don't
know what 'something' must be. It should be set to the earliest version that
doesn't need the workaround, but the current value of __SUNPRO_CC will also
