The lack of Heimdal on Solaris shouldn't be a problem, Samba bundles it
with the tarball and builds a DC with it by default. 
The main problem (as I see it) is that word 'Sparc', if Solaris 11 for
Sparc includes 4.4.14, then if the OP just wants a client then he
should go with this. If he wants a DC, then it gets sticky, does the
filesystem support ACLs ? etc
