I'm surprised that nobody has asked the question, so it is probably an obvious stupidity. Anyway there it goes.
Why bother to port? Why not reimplement everything (including the kernel modules) and put it under GPLv2? Building a compatible implementation shouldn't require that much effort, even to the point where DTrace scripts can be shared (that is, those which are not too tightly coupled to Solaris internals).
