This is a fairly old version of gcc. The version string indicates
it comes from CodeSourcery, and the most recent release of Sourcery G++
for SPARC/Solaris uses gcc 4.3.2

I imagine your version of gcc is just too old. You might want to check with Boost.Python
folks (who have a separate mailing list) if this version is gcc is known to not
work in general, but even if this is a solaris-specific glitch, upgrading and finding
the workaround yourself appears to be the most likely options.
