One thing that most likely should be noted is in the GLib README:

 If you are using the native iconv implementation on Solaris
 instead of libiconv, you'll need to make sure that you have 
 the converters between locale encodings and UTF-8 installed.
 At a minimum you'll need the SUNWuiu8 package. You probably
 should also install the SUNWciu8, SUNWhiu8, SUNWjiu8, and
 SUNWkiu8 packages.

This is the most common problem I've seen reported about GTK+
on Solaris. (Of course, everyone should read the GLib INSTALL
document if they are installing GLib from source, but....)

I don't know if this applies to Solaris 9, but it's been reported
with Solaris 2.5, 2.6 and 8.
