Subject: [boost] Solaris Boost Install headaches

I'm currently banging my head against a Boost install on Solaris 10 Sparc. I started with a 1.57 download and install. This had mild success using the "Getting started" documentation with some compilation errors. I've been asked to upgrade this to 1.62, and now I'm getting errors as follows when I run ./

$ ./
-n Building Boost.Build engine with toolset ...

Failed to build Boost.Build build engine
Consult 'bootstrap.log' for more details

In the Bootstrap.log file I get the following:
./ syntax error at line 135: `machine=$' unexpected

I've been unable to find any further documentation on this error. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Actually an in depth install guide for Solaris would be appreciated. I've had no issues on Windows, but Solaris is giving me migraines.
