yes, I did it few days ago. And I'm about to write some 'how I did it' 
as soon as I find the time.

Looks similar to the problems I had.

One hint: make absolutely sure that every new shell has the correct 
library paths in correct order. In my case, I had to set 
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib:/usr/lib and uncomment every other 
settings in .bashrc, .bash_profile and so on.
One try I thought I had luck with completely unsetting LD_LIBRARY_PATH, 
but I'm not sure whether that's correct. But it may be worth a try too.

We are. On Solaris 9 (SPARC).

Good luck
