It’s now nearly a week since I sent this email and I have not received a comment from anyone from Boost. Does this mean we have no experience building on Developer Studio 12.6 or Boost doesn’t care whether it works on Solaris or not. I suspect Problem #2 may be a Solaris issue but I’m not sure about Problem #1 because even the guys from Oracle have no comment about it. I would appreciate a comment from the maintainer of Boost.Optional.

Subject: Problem building Boost 1.64.0 with Oracle Developer Studio 12.6

Hi Boosters,

I have been trying to build Boost 1.64.0 with Oracle Developer Studio 12.6 on Oracle Solaris 11.3 x86_64.

There are two errors encountered during the build. They are:

1. Problem with Boost.Optional with this error messages:
"libs/log/src/named_scope.cpp", line 118: Error: Use of overloaded binary operator '=' is ambiguous.
"./boost/optional/optional.hpp", line 900: Note: Viable candidate 'boost::optional<boost::log::v2_mt_posix::attributes::named_scope_list>& boost::optional<boost::log::v2_mt_posix::attributes::named_scope_list>::operator=<boost::log::v2_mt_posix::attributes::named_scope_list&>(boost::log::v2_mt_posix::attributes::named_scope_list&)'.
"./boost/optional/optional.hpp", line 962: Note: Viable candidate 'boost::optional<boost::log::v2_mt_posix::attributes::named_scope_list>& boost::optional<boost::log::v2_mt_posix::attributes::named_scope_list>::operator=<boost::log::v2_mt_posix::attributes::named_scope_list&>(boost::log::v2_mt_posix::attributes::named_scope_list&)'.

2. Problem with Boost.Python with this error message:
"libs/python/src/numpy/dtype.cpp", line 61: Error: NPY_FLOAT16 is not defined.

Note that these two errors are the cause of 9 Boost shared libraries to not be generated.

I would appreciate it very much if someone could give me some pointers on how to resolve the above issues.

Kind regards,
