No, Solaris relies completely on LD_LIBRARY_PATH.
Shall I set the LD_LIBRARY_PATH for the location of the libraries or these
should be located under /usr/gnemul/sunos and /usr/gnemul/solaris ?

I'm not sure about the howto you are reading, but this can't be the right
way to do this. The file is looking for /lib/ld.so to execute it (this
file being from Solaris).
Shall I copy the /lib/ld.so for the Solaris sytem under Linux ?
cp sbin/sash /usr/gnemul/sbin
That should give you command line and some minimal shell commands.

I found this sash in the Debian distribution but I couldn't locate it under
Solaris (/ , /usr , /var , /home my mount positions for the ufs filesystem
By the way, after installing it with dpkg I found sash in the /bin (Linux).
So I'm not sure you meant this.
I got the same messages.
