I'd be tempted to run 'ldd' and see what libraries it needs. On my Solaris 9
box, with Mathematica 4.2 I see:
wren /usr/local/stow/Mathematica-4.2/SystemFiles/FrontEnd/Binaries/Solaris % ldd
libXt.so.4 => /usr/lib/libXt.so.4
libXext.so.0 => /usr/lib/libXext.so.0
libXmu.so.4 => /usr/lib/libXmu.so.4
libX11.so.4 => /usr/lib/libX11.so.4
libnsl.so.1 => /usr/lib/libnsl.so.1
libsocket.so.1 => /usr/lib/libsocket.so.1
libc.so.1 => /usr/lib/libc.so.1
libucb.so.1 => /usr/ucblib/libucb.so.1
librt.so.1 => /usr/lib/librt.so.1
libpthread.so.1 => /usr/lib/libpthread.so.1
libSM.so.6 => /usr/lib/libSM.so.6
libICE.so.6 => /usr/lib/libICE.so.6
libm.so.1 => /usr/lib/libm.so.1
libdl.so.1 => /usr/lib/libdl.so.1
libmp.so.2 => /usr/lib/libmp.so.2
libelf.so.1 => /usr/lib/libelf.so.1

libmd5.so.1 => /usr/lib/libmd5.so.1
libthread.so.1 => /usr/lib/libthread.so.1
You should be able to find the libraries it's using, and hopefully it might just
be looking in the wrong place, in which case you may be able to create a
However, if Solaris 2.6 is not supported (I don't know if it is) it is quite
possible it wants a library you don't have, in which case you are stuck unless
you re-install a later OS.
