For reference: Solaris 9 EOL

In short it means Solaris 9 is no longer eligible for any Oracle updates 
including security updates, fixes, patches or any other changes.  Solaris 9 
went into sustaining support in October 2014.

Since Oracle is no longer providing any patches for this OS, I don't see much 
reason for us to either. Fortunately you are free to patch and build OpenLDAP 
for yourself for as long as you wish.
