Is there a place where I can find the suggested method of updating this?

It seems that sun doesn't default to automatically linking in the
library for C++, as you say.  I'd prefer to fix this by setting C++
only link flags, but

It looks like scons-local could benefit from having a distinction
between the C linker and the C++ linker, or at least augmenting the CC
linker. In sunlink.py. Adding -lCrun -lCstd to env['SHLINKFLAGS']
doesn't seem to do anything. Is there any chance that scons has a
separate way to pull the flags for a C++ compiler, eg

In the mean time, I'm going to just add -lCrun and -lCstd to LDFLAGS
for everything :(
