I checked that Solaris 10 5/08 has DTrace 1.3 and does support the  
feature (not yet fully tested).
According to their (not up-to-date) Change Log [1], it would not be  
present in Solaris 10 7/05 though and possibly not in 6/06. From my  
previous attempt I believe 8/07 does have it.

Can we assume that Solaris users will have a reasonably updated  
system? That would greatly simplify matters.

Update: I've prepared a dtrace-prelink.sh.in shell script yesterday  
that appeared to do the right thing for pedump in a dry run on OSX  
(which does not need it for lack of dtrace -G). To be updated to use $ 
{AR} and to be tested for an actual (Open)Solaris build.
