Yes. Make sure
you're not using GNU ld (GNU ld under Solaris is broken - remove it
you link the .so with 'ld -G foomodule.so foomodule.o otherbit.o -lneededlib'
(substitute in real filenames and library names, of course)
Note that you don't need to link with -lPython, -LParser, or the like.
Hm, maybe DOC-SIG could come up with a page of 'how to dynamically link
a module on O/S Foo-ix' instructions...
