There are no Developer Snapshot for Solaris, and you're right, the en-US
install set is missing. I CC here L'oiseau de mer, who kindly
contributed the Solaris builds.

No, there isn't.

These are not official builds, but community contributed. Right now
Apache OpenOffice has only a buildboot building Linux x86-64 DEB
packages. When all build machines are set up, there will be official
version for all supported platforms.

On the other hand, I didn't place all packages on the same page and
linked them instead because:

* my internet provider gives very low upload bandwidth (0.68 Mb/s,
  compared to the 12.30 Mb/s upload bandwidth), uploading the builds
  I built myself took me 5 hours 

* including the Solaris and Mac OS X packages in the download tables on
  that page would be rather confusing, because all my builds are Developer
  Snapshots based on the same revision, Solaris builds my be of the same
  or a close revision, but are not dev builds; and Mac OS X builds are
  older and no dev builds either.
