I have seen this and I think, even downloaded all the pieces.  However,
it appears, that on top of a bare Solaris installation you need to
configure about 6 different pieces of it, and those pieces depend on
each other.  

I looked around but could not seem to find out exactly what the steps
were and which piece should be installed first.  Then I gave up.

However, it does have shared calendaring and even an OutHouse connector,
which would pretty groovy to have working.
