When was this compiler released? I believe that even the latest version from
Sun has problems with Boost. The previous versions are almost hopeless.

It is very difficult, I believe, because that compiler is buggy and Boost, and
in particular the graph library, is very template intensive.

I don't understand the question, sorry. I suppose you can adjust some boost
libraries that don't work on that compiler so that they work, but nobody will
tell for sure if that's possible and how much time it will take.

will help?

You mean, how to create makefiles. Sorry, this would have to be manual work.

Sorry, I don't understand the question.
