I posted about this issue as well. Solaris either needs #!/bin/bash or  
changes to constructs such as export X=y (X=y; export X). There would  
also be changes necessary for some redirects.

Don't know what start-stop-service refers to, but I should have files  
around to integrate mono-service2 with Solaris' Service Management  
Facility, in case that's of interest.

Another issue on Solaris is this:
Haven't figured out the correct way to handle this, since this appears  
to have changed between Solaris versions, and anyone could of course  
install GNU libs, so it needs to be detected some way. Currently don't  
have time to look further into that issue. But it is necessary to fix  
it (locally) in order to run MonoDevelop.
