Chuck, didn't I send you the full kit of changes for Solaris ? You can usually 
find them on, get the Solaris 10 patch-kit, 
though they are  little dated there at the moment (Mostly because wine had a 
regression last weekend that prevents it working properly, and I don't 
publish non-working binaries)

Anyway, you are re-inventing the wheel here, you will need the attached patch 
which will allow you to use either sysv native threads or lwp's if you like. 
LWPs are not supported post Solaris 9, but there are other problems to 
overcome, particularly ptrace and the debugger. This implementation is pretty 
well tested, event if not ready for primetime (Ugly debugging code is still 
in there).
