Great, so this means SmartOS is just another member of Solaris family. 
I've installed it and verified that `ld' and `nm' are really what we 
expect on real Solaris. In fact thanks for your advice I've been able to 
use its packaged GHC on my Solaris 11 to compile some code and even 
attempted the bootstrap of HEAD for Solaris/AMD64 platform. There are 
some outstanding issues with bootstrap so this needs to wait till my 
weekend ghc hobby time...(if someone does not solved it faster of course...)
