Well, that's an interesting suggestion. The output from "configure
--with-toolset=sun" is:

-n Building Boost.Jam with toolset sun...
./configure: ./bootstrap/jam0: not found
-n Detecting Python version...
-n Detecting Python root...
-n Unicode/ICU support for Boost.Regex?...
not found.
Generating Boost.Build configuration in user-config.jam...
Generating Makefile...

And then "make" (Gnu make) yields:

./tools/jam/src//bjam --user-config=user-config.jam
/bin/sh: ./tools/jam/src//bjam: not found
Not all Boost libraries built properly.

My earlier ("sunpro") attempt had yielded a
"tools/jam/src/bin.solaris/bjam" executable, and the
"tools/jam/src//bjam" above makes me think that perhaps bjam itself
expects to be built --with-toolset=sunpro and the rest

And in fact, I did that: grabbed the bin.solaris/bjam from my sunpro
attempt, placed it in /usr/local/bin, and re-ran configure with the
additional flag "--with-bjam=/usr/local/bin/bjam" [as well as
"--with-toolset=sun"] and this has gotten me much further, into the land
of esoteric template instantiation errors (which I'll try to resolve
before bothering the Boost list, of course... Perhaps needs STLPort...).

Anyway, thanks for the tip, that led directly to the answer to my
