Sounds like you don't have the runtime linker ( configured
correctly or don't have your environment setup.

Solaris 8 & 9 has a command, crle, which is similar to the Linux
ldconfig command.  I typically add all lib paths to it so I don't have
to worry about setting environment variables for all the different
shells.  As a best practice I have a bootup script which runs this on
every boot in case libraries are added, removed or patched.

As root or in a startup script...

# crle -c /var/ld/ld.config -l \
   /usr/lib:/usr/local/lib:/usr/local/ssl/lib:/apps/pgsql/lib \
   -i /usr/lib -i /usr/local/lib -i /usr/local/ssl/lib -i /apps/pgsql/lib

See crle(1) man page for all the options.
