[Python-3000] Solaris support in 3.0?

This is a combination question-and-status-report email. The question
would be, what does the "somewhat" tag mean on Solaris support in the
release notes for 3.0a1, and does someone have a list of things that
don't work, or does that just mean it hasn't been tested?
I built 3.0a1 on Sparc Solaris (5.8), and except for those things that
didn't build for lack of the required dependencies (_bsddb, _hashlib,
_ssl, _tkinter, gdbm, ossaudiodev, readline, _curses, _curses_panel),
everything claims to have built fine (with gcc 3.4.6).
Unit tests reveal the following failures:
test_cookielib (no _md5)
test_uuid (no _md5)
And the following unexpected (according to it) skips:
test_hashlib (no _md5)
test_hmac (no _md5)
test_urllib2_localnet (no _md5)
test_urllib2net (no _md5)
test_urllib2 (no _md5)
test_tcl (no tcl on my system)
test_sundry (no _md5)
test_ssl (no SSL in my configuration)
test_tarfile (no _md5)
test_unicodedata (no _md5)
If anyone wants more data on any of these particular failures, let me
know, otherwise I'm going to start working through the ones that fail
in 3.0 that don't fail in 2.6. All of the _md5 failures are because
of the lack of SSL, so I'm not sure that the tests should be 'failing'
in this configuration.
