Uh...  The translator hasn't been tested on Solaris 10, but it _does_ work 
on Solaris 9.  We've been running it in production for over a year now.  If 
you are running 1.2 on your translator machine, you might want the patches 
in tickets 15960, 15961, and 15962.  These were all applied to the head 
quite some time ago and should appear in 1.4.
