I use the attached patch and it works for us. It might not be the best way to fix it.
No patch attached :-). Can you upload it please ?

Solaris has two different implementations for gethostbyname_r(). We set the correct variables to use the POSIX API and not the SUN API.
* Defining _POSIX_PTHREAD_SEMANTICS before including pwd.h and grp.h gives us
* the posix getpwnam_r(), getpwuid_r(), getgrnam_r and getgrgid_r calls on
The question is why is this not working for your Solaris. It works just fine with OpenIndiana.

Last time I checked master compiles just fine on Solaris (this is Solaris 11.1). Can you check whether this is actually still an issue with master?

Compiling error on Solaris 11.x
We are using SmartOS. Today I installed Solaris 11.2 and tried to compile Samba master, it failed for the same reason.
Please refer to the attached file for more information.
Can you please take a look at the header files. Do they contain POSIX versions of gethostbyname_r?
(In reply to Andreas Schneider from comment #6)
No, Solaris does not have posix definitions of gethostbyname_r and gethostbyaddr_r.
Please look at the following URL for what they have, although it's from illumos-gate, but the file content is very similar (I have checked on a real Solaris 11.2 installation).
