Subject: [Boost-build] Problem with the Sun toolset and C compiles
From: Edward Diener (eldiener_at_[hidden])

The problem I have uncovered is if the Sun toolset is being used and one
is compiling C, as opposed to C++, files with it. In this case the
toolset correctly invokes the Sun compiler using 'cc' rather than 'CC'.
Unfortunately when it invokes the 'cc' compiler it still passes the
-KPIC option to the compiler and this produces an error from the
cc: error: unrecognized command line option -KPIC
and the compilation fails.
Could this please be corrected in the Boost Build toolset for this
compiler so that invoking the C compiler does not pass this option ? If
necessary I will be glad to create a Trac item for this but I wanted to
bring it to the attention of Boost Build here.
