This is a known issue that will be fixed in cvs head fairly soon
(we'll be using sun consistently and dropping the use of sunpro).

What that user said was use Sun to build bjam and use Gcc to build
process_jam_log, since both sun-5.7 and sun-5.8 compilers seg fault
when compiling process_jam_log.cpp.

This has been fixed, no?

Yes, I regress sun-5.7 and sun-5.8 toolsets every night but I've been
having problems posting the regression test results to Metacomm.
