Solaris is not the operating system, you're getting your terms mixed up.

What does uname -a say for your system? I don't have access to the Sun
box from home but mine was definately SunOS 5.5. If I was to guess from
you man page I'd say it was a BSD based system or possibly an early
SYSV release where BSD might still have been a core part of the OS (I never
used an early SYSV SunOS).
