If you can send me the patches, I can have a go at compiling / running on our machines, and let you know the results.

What compiler is needed? GCC ? SunStudio?

We have patches for Solaris, but lack testing facilities.  I have
received a Solaris 10 media kit from Sun which I will try to install in
VMWare so I can test the patches - hopefully in time for 1.1.  I tried
OpenSolaris Nevada previously, and had no luck running it in VMWare.
