I'm surprised there are still people out there having too much free
spare time ....

Maybe you don't know Sun very much. Sun has a significant history of
supporting binaries of already outdated operating system versions, so
we can expect our binaries to run on Solaris10. And _if_ we realize
that there are users having access to a workstation that is capable of
running FlightGear (as the requirements for FlightGear have grown
rapidly I assume you need at least an XVR-1000 board), running
Solaris10 and having difficulties with our sol8 binaries, then we still
can think about putting Solaris10 on someone's machine and build
FlightGear there.
I think you have forgotten that Solaris10 is not a CDDL-thing only, as
with previous releases you can still simply order the install media,

 Unix _IS_ user friendly - it's just selective about who its friends are !
