Well, the only reason why it might be harder is because Solaris ships
with practically no useful graphic library (and GNOME uses a bunch of
them), but if you have those installed, GNOME does pretty much work if
you do:

./configure; make install

The next release address a number of portability problems as described
by Philippe Defert, so the task should be very simple for aix, irix
and hp-ux.
