No, you'll need a different library for solaris. Solaris and Linux are not binary compatible.

I stand somewhat corrected.. The newest version of Solaris (Solaris 10) has binary compatibility with Linux applications so this may work for you on that platform. This is a new feature so I wouldn't guarantee 'full compatibility' but apparently Sun does.

Here is a link that discusses the compatibility (Reason 10):
