The last Solaris 10 release from Oracle is S10u11, with a release date of 
January 2013.  Is this what you are running?  Or something else?

I've ran gimp on Solaris, both SPARC and Intel.  It runs.  Never done anything 
meaningful with it, other than maybe rotate or crop an image.  Spent too many 
years with Adobe applications to ever attempt anything meaningful with gimp, and 
because of that, there will always be a Mac of some sorts next to my Solaris 
and/or OpenIndiana desktop.
