there is another simple command
pstack - which tells u in very high level where u see the problem.

pstack core.
it will dump the stack trace of core file, and tells u what path it took to dump the core.
for more though debugging u have to use
dbx/gdb/mdb kind of debuggers.

gdb is GNU free debugging tool and also avilable for Solaris, it is very handy and useful.
