In theory, for Sun the RPATH_LINK variable should be empty, so the whole:

The problem is that V2 has no idea if you're using GNU linker, or a sun
linker, so it needs a bit of help.

Try changing the "using" invocation to this:

      using gcc
           : # whatever version you have now, or none
           : <linker-type>sun

To double-check, you can add

   ECHO $(linker) ;

right in the beginning of the 'init-link-flags' rule.
