More importantly for everyday use, has Sun ever gotten around to adding the 'z' switch to tar, or the -h switch to df?

Since you ask so nicely :-)

Yes, Solaris df now has the -h switch.

No, Solaris tar does not have the z switch, but GNU tar is installed on every Solaris system - and has been for a while - by default. Unfortunately, it's hidden away in /usr/sfw/bin along with lots and lots of other goodies such as, say, mozilla...

And, where is the kernel? I looked for it in /usr/sfw/boot/vmlinuz*
but couldn't find it. Perhaps is vmlinux instead?
