Ah, ok. Looking at the directory main/bridges/source/cpp_uno there is no 
UNO bridge yet for Solaris Studio on a x86-64 CPU. But apparently your 
compile got through, so in order to know where to tweak you need to find 
out which bridge was actually used. Then you can adapt it to your 
platform (operating system, compiler, cpu architecture, ABI).

As I mentioned the platform independence of AOO's UNO subsystem was 
unfortunately not designed in e.g. by using plain programming language 
constructs or using portable mechanisms like C-linking. Getting a bridge 
to work was accomplished by brute force :-/ (reverse engineering the 
vtable layouts, symbol mangling, calling conventions, implementation 
details of exception handling, etc.) but if we're lucky a few tweaks to 
the currently active bridge could suffice.

For an idea on what tweaks might be needed please check the evolution of 
the related x86-64 bridges for Linux, FreeBSD or MacOSX.
