Then go use the "other software raid solutions".

Disksuite (or whatever Sun is currently calling it) is what comes with
Solaris, it's one of the best and most robust software RAID solutions
out there that won't get you into a $20,000 license fee, and it works
just fine.  There's a documented procedure for setting up raid1 boot on
Solaris, and it basically takes about ten minutes plus however long your
machine takes to do a reboot and a metadevice sync.

I can even provide you with a URL to the procedure, if you can bring
yourself to use "a complete pile of shit".
