There are several binary-only Linux apps which a user may want to run on Solaris/x86. And speaking as a Blastwave maintainer, it's not always trivial to recompile Linux appss for Solaris -- quite a few open source packages require GNU tar to expand, GNU autoconf to configure and GNU make, gcc, GNU ld and glibc to compile. Even then, there are some that use Llinux-specific syscalls.
