First of all, the appropriate toolset is 'sunpro', i.e., 'bjam
"-sTOOLS=sunpro"'. Secondly, the amount of success you will have depends
on the version of Sun CC you are using. I run weekly regressions
( against
version 5.4, or SunONE Studio 7 (the latest version is 8, CC 5.5). A
considerably large numbers of libraries fail, so your mileage may vary.
Any version of CC earlier than 5.4 is pretty much out of luck.
