I haven't come across one. I think you have no choice but to look at the
code for 'make install' and perhaps 'make packages' for the linux port
and hack it for Solaris. In any case, it should not be that difficult.
Firebird operates out of a single directory. Most of the install stuff is
just making sure that it 'fits' with the host OS. This means putting
appropriate sym links in /usr, for example, and making sure that
(x)inetd knows about it (if you are installing classic).

BTW, you will probably find more help with porting and building problems
on the fb-devel list. fb-support is for users needing support with
production versions of Firebird.
