You need 3.5b8.
The solaris FAQ says:
*2.3) What Software is available for Solaris 2.x?
Most commercial software that ran on 4.x either will run in BCP
mode, or is available for Solaris 2.x, or is being ported now.
Solaris 2.3 BCP mode finally supports statically-linked executables.
Solaris 2.5 BCP mode supports mixed mode (part static, part dynamic)
Sun's web pages contain a searchable index
of commercial software and a link to an outside contractor
who gathers free and public domain programs. Sun's own software is
also prominently featured at www.sun.com.
A list of freeware (some "public domain", but mostly copyright-
but-freely-distributable) [as well as commercial software??]
that has been ported to Solaris 2.x
is posted monthly to the newsgroup comp.unix.solaris by
Subject: Solaris SW list. Monthly Post.
Some software that invariably needs minor tweaking after an OS upgrade
is included here specially. It's almost always necessary to recompile
it after an OS upgrade, but if that still doesn't give a working
version, make sure you check the archives for the latest version:
SymbEL/SE performance monitor
Top - a process monitor
Site carrying the latest version of Top
Lsof - list open files
Identd - a daemon that implements RFC1413
scsiinfo - a program that lists SCSI devices.
sysinfo - a system hardware information program.
If you use gcc, it is important to remember that you must re-run
fixincludes or re-install gcc after an OS upgrade, unless you run
gcc 2.8 or later, or you'll be compiling with the old include files
which will essentially give you the above programs as if compiled
for a previous OS release.
