The puma.config file is used by the AspectC++ parser (called Puma) to define 
-D, -I, and -A options, which you don't like to enter on the command line. It 
should also contain the three lines (or similar), which you have listed 
above. These are needed for the AspectC++ parser itself.
Normally a C++ compiler comes with include files and has a set of predefined 
macros (like __unix, x86, etc.). The corresponding include paths and macros 
should be defined for the AspectC++ run as well.The pumag++conf.pl script is 
just an aid to obtain these predefined macros and include paths directly from 
the g++ compiler and generate a puma.config. pumag++conf.pl does not work 
with Sun's C++ compiler, but you could simply write a puma.config by hand if 
you know the necessary paths and macros.
I am also working in a Solaris environment now. Thus, I'm sure that 
there will be full support for Sun's C++ compiler soon.
