It apparently does for some folks on some version of Solaris.

Are you using a vendor provided compiler? or gcc/egcs or other?

I wasn't aware that the Solaris compiler/linker grok'ed -kthread.
If it does and it's not generating an error, I recommend updating
the Solaris hint (in the FAQ) with the additional requirement.

If using gcc/egcs or something else, I suggest adding
an additional answer under Solaris hint (in the FAQ) with
appropriate instructions.  (In this case, you may also want to
submit a patch to the gcc/egcs folks that implements
-kthread/-pthread behavior).

(note: the FAQ is interactive, feel free to add appropriate answers)

I've updated this already in -devel and releng 1.2.

The intention is to have them documented in the guide.

You are welcomed to contribute to the guide.
