There is my answer. I hope that it helps:

You use own tools in /usr/local like grep and so on. But all these tools
are already on the system in /usr/gnu/bin directory. Most of them are
patched for better integration with solaris. Use own compiled version is
risky and IIRC only gmake is what you really need for build. All other
original Solaris tools works fine.

I run buildfarm on Solaris snv and it works fine. You can see
configuration here:
