I believe the rule from Sun was that you've got a binary license to run 
whatever OS shipped with the system, so far as licensing goes.

But from what you wrote, I assume when you say Solaris-ish you mean 
Solaris 2.x? These systems shipped with SunOS 4.x unless I'm badly 
mistaken. How is another flavor of BSD less period-correct than the SVR4 
of Solaris 2.x?
