Perhaps it would be best to try and meet in IRC (#gdal on irc.freenode.net)
to try and debug your build problems on Solaris.  Alternatively, if you can
provide temporary ssh access to me, I could likely build it.

I don't think there should be any great difficulty in building on Solaris
as long as reasonably functional tool chain is available.  I would hesitate
to take on building the ECW libraries there though.  I'm sure it is possible,
but perhaps not easy.
