That is one to ask Konstantin. I see that 64-bit support is being
reported for your OS. Firebird on that platform is a 32-bit
application. I have no idea how friendly 64-bit Solaris is toward
32-bit apps, e.g. there might be some environment setting you need to make.

With Superserver on Linux one also needs to be concerned about the
threading model that the architecture uses by default (SS is a
threaded process). So ask Konstantin about that, as well.

Why wait? Once you get things going nicely, how hard would it be for
you write a little How-to for others setting up on Solaris/Intel? If
you do it, send it to me, I'll see that it goes to the right place.
