ACL support in general is only an official patch, namely acls.diff.
However, it is a pretty good patch, and Solaris is one of the
operating systems that it supports. If you want ACLs, apply the patch
and pass --enable-acl-support when you configure. That gives you
observance of default ACLs when -p is disabled and an option -A,
--acls to preserve ACLs. The man page is patched to document -A and
to discuss default ACLs under -p. There is no
operating-system-specific documentation, nor are the details of how
ACLs are converted from one operating system to another documented,
but this shouldn't be a problem.
