No, you can't have them. It's a proprietary code. However you could find the ifconfig source for many free Unix OS out there like Linux, FreeBSD, NetBSD ...
Should give you some idea.

Source code for old version should exist, as for old version of Solaris!

No, n0thing is right, All source code for Solaris is proprietary.
It is not free. You have to pay for it. (Unless you are a
university and you sign a non-disclosure agreement, and 12-15
pages of licensing material and legalese)

There is no freely available Solaris source code, period.
Go check out NetBSD source code.
