The OpenI18N 1.2 compliant gettext support was first introcduced 
in Solaris 9, so vanilla Solaris 8 does not have Plurals/ngettext
support. But there are packport of OpenI18N 1.2 compliant gettext
support released as patches. 

	 SPARC: 108827-34 (for libc) and 113415-01 (for commands)
	 x86:   108828-35 (for libc) and ??????    (for commands)

So with these patches, Solaris 8 is also OK with the use of this

There is no backport as far as I know of for Solaris 7 or the earlier
