There were other errors from other boost libs, but these two were the only ones
reported from just the boost/python build. They were actually reported many
times (same errors) since they are in headers.

I'm not using the forte 7 compiler. I'm using v6.2 corresponds to version 6 of
the toolset, I believe.
I've been told I may be able to use the GNU compiler - which I did recently,
and boost.python finally built on solaris (with gcc-tools.jam). However, the
threads library failed to build.
