I understand. If what you want is to show this on the regression tests,
update the status/explicit-failures-markup.xml

<library name="thread">
<toolset name="*como-4_3_3*"/>
<note author="B. Dawes" refid="10"/>

If what you want is to avoid the build completely, I could not help you
too much. Perhaps you could define a specific rule that uses

     if ! <toolset>sun in $(properties)

At a last resort you could add some code to report a clear error when
__SUNPRO_CC is defined.
