Either way I've added a page to the wiki called "CompilingOnSolaris"

I've managed to get it building now, using your configure line. I've had
a couple of unit test failures too, but I'm re-running it just in case

I've also found various problems with FreeBSD but I'll drop a separate
email about that later.
