I would guess that Solaris 11 for sparc has the same packages available
as for Solaris 11. I would surprised if it doesn't. Compiling Samba
on Solaris has always been a struggle for me. I wouldn't bother
trying it, so I think it effectively rules out using Solaris as a Samba
AD directory server. The nice thing about the precompiled version
of Solaris (the one bundled with the OS) is that all the ZFS ACL modules
are compiled in, and the correct kerberos and ldap client paths are
compiled in. The nice thing about the precompiled version of Solaris

Solaris 11 supports ACL's assuming you are using the ZFS file system
(which shd be the default with the possible exception of the root and
var, depending on the solaris release that was installed.) The ZFS
acl's are a not, I think, actually posix acl's, so sometimes the
behavior between unix level and windows level permissions is not quite
what you expect. I would avoid trying set permissions for multiple
users and multiple groups- if you have a ProjectX folder you should have
a corresponding ProjectX group.
I am curious about what the Solaris Sparc software is?
