How do you solve the problem that you cannot legally distribute
software which is licensed under the GNU General Public License and is
linked against a libc which is covered by the CDDL?  Have you ported
GNU libc?

You should drop all references to the "Solaris" trademark because
Sun's terms of use are anything but open (worse than Debian's).  And
of course, compliance with the GPL in all aspects is very desirable,
