Yes.  Sorry, all, I confused the date with the release:

[~]=> cat /etc/release
                   Oracle Solaris 10 1/13 s10s_u11wos_24a SPARC

I assume that you have the Silver.  I ran versions of gimp that I
compiled from source.  It wasn't that bad.  I never tried the
Oracle-sigh-supplied binary gimp. which is probably better tuned.
