Yes, it is true. We are now working on build environment for S10U4 and newer and 
I hope we will release 8.3.1 for S10U4 soon.

Yes, Solaris 10 is only supported version of solaris, you can buy limited 
support also for OpenSolaris Developer edition but it is more for application 
developers. If you are on 11/06 it is probably S10U3 it is not good version for 
PostgreSQL anyway. We require S10U4 or newer, because it contains krb5, new 
version of dtrace (important for building) and updated libXML. You can apply 
patches on your system to update dtrace and libXML, but krb5 is a new feature 
you can try install krb5 packages from S10U4 but I'm not sure if it works.
