I have only one extern "C" {} block in the whole code. Its job is to
create a wrapper that allows a member function to be used as a pointer
to the pthread_create() function. I have checked that it is closed
properly. eg:

extern "C" {
    void *ThreadStartup(void *);

The top of the file looks like:

#ifndef ZZ_BROKER_H
#define ZZ_BROKER_H

#include <config.h>

#include <iostream>
#include <pthread.h>
#include <boost/smart_ptr.hpp>


The code compiles fine under gcc-linux (gentoo, mandrake), mingw,
cygwin, its just Solaris thats causing problems. I'm not sure if this
is due to it being the non-standard install of gcc or not, or whether it
is a problem with the way I build boost etc.
