A solution is to tell them to:

  linux$ infocmp xterm-color > missing-term.tic

(replace `xterm-color' with your favourite terminal name found on linux,
but not on Solaris)

Get `missing-terms.tic' somehow to the Solaris machine,

  solaris$ TERMINFO=$HOME/.missing-terms
  solaris$ export TERMINFO
  solaris$ mkdir $TERMINFO
  solaris$ tic missing-term.tic

and put this in some init file:

  export TERMINFO
