Hadoop has a # of extension points that require compilations of native C/C++
code. Most of that code should be reasonably portable, but you'll have to
try for yourself. SPARC may present an additional challenge with regard
to some of the recent issue of unaligned memory access -- watch out for
those as well.

If you're interested in getting Hadoop to run on Solaris -- you can also ping
me off-list with particular questions.
