Well, I don't know Solaris, But building for a 32-bit ISA is not
necessarily incompatible with correct handling of >31bit (or even
>32bit) file sizes - NetBSD runs on lots of 32-bit-only machines with
full support for files bigger than 4G, and has for over a decade. This
is not rocket science.
Which is not to say that Solaris bothers to do so, of course. Which is
why I led off with that disclaimer.
