I was able to compile 0.8.7 for solaris 2.5.1 with very minimal changes.
In src/TCPTransmitter.cc I added these lines:

	#define socklen_t int

as they don't seem to be supplied in any of the solaris headers.  I believe
that's all that is needed to compile if you don't need SSL support.  To get
SSL working (since solaris doesn't have /dev/random), I had to add some
code to invoke prngd (part of openssh) to seed the random number
