stlport4, definitely.

 From Sun's CC manpage,

                [no%]tmplife (Standard mode only) [Do not] Clean
                               up the temporary objects that are
                               created by an expression at the end
                               of the full expression, as defined
                               in the ANSI/ISO C++ Standard.
                               (When -features=no%tmplife is in
                               effect, most temporary objects are
                               cleaned up at the end of their
                               block.) The default is no%tmplife.

Which I read to mean that -features=tmplife leaves temporary files
scattered around.
