First I did this in the past. Please see

At that time I was sure the patches would find their way to source tree,
but apparently they have been ignored...

I said that they are more open-minded! And I based this on my own
personal experience. Not to mention that since you got the code
from a company that produces Solaris, out of courtesy you should
ensure the suite compiles under Solaris...

Hardware? We are not talking about SPARC machines. Nobody
cares about these machines anymore. We are talking about 
"ordinary" computers with Intel or Intel-like processors. Second
you do not need experts. You only need people that know
Unix. After all, we are not takling about driver porting here...

I am sure the whole OpenIndiana community would like to help
provided you do a few simple things: abandon SunStudio for
Solaris and change the MAKE files according to our suggestions.
