Subject: [Boost-build] boost build on sun does not work for me...

I'm new to boost build. Looking a while for a suiting build system
I found myself surprised how nicely the boost build does the job!
Windows (Visual Studio Compiler) and most Linux derivates are working fine.
Problems I have got with sun; the uname does say following:

SunOS srvsun5 5.10 Generic_118822-30 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-V490

I tried the same installation work flow; the bjam has been build well
and I get (--version):

Boost.Build V2 (Milestone 12)
Boost.Jam 03.1.16

However, when trying to use bjam I'm running into following problems:
(Can somebody help?)
