To my knowledge, no one is actively reporting Solaris porting bugs,
which implies that no one is actively trying to maintain a Solaris port.
 Yes, it would be nice to work on Solaris, but it's not the primary
platform.

That said, now that 0.8.7 is out the door, I'm pushing the full .gnulib
update, since we now have a full release cycle to test things (including
anyone wanting to try building on Solaris to benefit from the latest
round of gnulib fixes).
