A couple days ago, someone was asking about this.
Pieter Krul's response might be helpful. (If the
building people ever get around to finishing their
rewiring, I'll have a system I can play with for
this sort of thing, but right now they are trying to
patch the roof so that rain doesn't leak into our
telephone room anymore.)

For Solaris you probably need to put libraries etc. in
/usr/gnemul/solaris/usr/lib, and you might need to run all
binaries as superuser.

I have tested some things about 3 years ago on an Ultra1 w/ 2.2.12
and Solaris 5.6 libs and binaries.

Solaris binaries such as nslookup, uname, gcc, xsol, dtcalc,
sophos antivirus and oclock ran fine.

What gives for instance the command uname?
