Currently we lack support for COM Interop in Mono (it is a low priority,
as there is no standard and complete COM implementation for Unix).

You should have an mcs as part of the Mono distribution that you can use
in Solaris.   You can attempted to rebuild mcs on Solaris, but since we
do not have a JIT engine for Solaris (only an interpreter), this will be
a bit slow ;-)

The JIT for Solaris will be done once we ship our new JIT engine, which
should happen sometime in February next year.
