Yes, the 0.7.0 does have changes for Solaris. They were all generic porting issues between *nix systems. Solaris uses a different number of arguments to gethostbyname_r, the argp parsing library didn't exist on solaris, a whole bunch of strXXX() functions weren't on solaris, various Makefile tweaks for portability, etc. The sunbmc driver has not been tested at all in FreeIPMI 0.7.0. So if you have a system with that driver, it'd be good to see if FreeIPMI 0.7.0 implements things correctly.
