In general it works fairly well. The only problem currently is that  
fpmake is broken on that platform (so "make all" in svn trunk doesn't  
work anymore), and the people working on fpmake don't have access to a  
Solaris/SPARC machine. Maybe Pierre will look into it. In general,  
Solaris/SPARC is not actively supported (we only try not to break what  
works), although Pierre has worked quite a bit on it the past year.

Dynamic libraries work on it in svn trunk.
