make sure you have the Asian fonts required for UTF-8 installed:
SUNW5xmft      Traditional Chinese (BIG5) X Windows Platform minimum 
required Fonts Package
SUNWciu8       Simplified Chinese (EUC) iconv modules for UTF-8
SUNWcxmft      Simplified Chinese (EUC) X Windows Platform minimum 
Required Fonts
SUNWhiu8       Traditional Chinese iconv modules for UTF-8
SUNWkiu8       Korean UTF-8 iconv modules for UTF-8
SUNWkxmft      Korean UTF-8 X Windows Platform minimum Required Fonts

Otherwise, the Encode::compat module fails for big5/utf-8 conversion.
Should be no issue unless you start minimizing the system and throwing 
away unnecessary packages.

If you have installed gcc (from SFW) and plan to use CPAN, make sure you 
edit /usr/perl5/5.00503/sun4-solaris/Config.pm and 
/usr/perl5/5.6.1/lib/sun4-solaris/Config.pm to point to gcc:

cpprun='gcc -E'
cppstdin='gcc -E'
optimize='-O3 -fomit-frame-pointer'

Now it should run smoothly ;-)

I run on a monolithic Apache/1.3.27 mod_perl/1.28 mod_ssl/2.8.14 
OpenSSL/0.9.7b with mysql/4.0.13.
