It should definately be portable to Solaris, yes.
I can't do this myself, as I don't have Solaris :(
The main SETUP guy did a lot of work porting it to various other unices.

Also, installing the missionpacks with the last cd-based one I uploaded
isn't working apparently (I don't have enough feedback from more people
to say for sure). The authors of setup know about this, but are too busy
to fix the cd code (there's something broken even if it's not just
multiple-cd installs). So, I wouldn't include the missionpack cd
installing, if I were doing a from-cd installer for Solaris. Just
installing the data from the main win32 cd should work okay.
