The only success we have had with other FOSS tools on Solaris platforms 
has been using the Blastwave repository.

If you have a choice on the OS variant of Solaris, I would strongly urge 
Nexenta, as building FOSS is quite easy (it is Debian with a Solaris 
kernel).  If it has to be pure Sun Solaris, then get the latest version, 
and use the blastwave tools to augment your system.  If it is 
OpenSolaris, do a similar thing.
