That's exactly the right fix. As a bit of background, long time ago all
toolsets had to declare 'version' subfeatures on their own. Time passed, and
new 'common.check-init-parameters' function was added that declared
subfeatures automatically. Apparantly, the sun toolset was not fully
transitioned to use the new mechanism.

Fixed now on trunk and branch. Thanks for report and suggested fix!
