I've started working on this, and the trunk of libkqueue now compiles on 
Solaris. Most of the functionality is broken, but it's a start. The "event 
ports" subsystem of Solaris is very similar to kqueue, and I expect the rest 
of the porting effort to go pretty smoothly. There's a couple of obstacles:

  1. Solaris ships with GCC 3.4 which doesn't have atomic builtins
  2. OpenSolaris has an equivalent to EVFILT_VNODE but Solaris doesn't.

I'm hoping to release libkqueue 0.9 with Solaris support in the next few weeks.
