not sure, but the initial question could also be read meaning he wants
to do cross-compiling, i.e. doing the build on Linux but running the
executable on Solaris.

If that's the intention, I would advise you not to try it, except you
consider yourself an experts in these kind of things. Although
theoretically possible, it's definitely nothing for the faint-hearted. ;)
