Maybe I'm just showing off how much I've forgotten about Solaris over
the last few years, but didn't they do this backwards? ISTR that Solaris
would automatically enable forwarding when it detected multiple
interfaces and you touched /etc/notrouter if you didn't want the startup
scripts to do this.

/etc/defaultrouter then contains either the hostname or the IP address
of the default gateway.

Please tell me I haven't forgotten this.
