Well, good question, after a little testing I finally found
out, how I really did it (:-) sorry):

I uncompress the tar.gz file on the Linux machine and copy it
to the Sun. There I unpack it with Solaris's tar, get a 
"directory checksum error" message and ignore it.
Then I just use ant. Somehow it works, maybe some tasks I do
not use are broken, I do not know.

A jar-package may work correctly, I will test this, if I will
get problems with my solaris installation.
