    Probably there are many differences between Linux and Solaris...

    For some code running on both architectures you can see XFree86 (or if you prefer), or MPlayer. MPlayer sources are available in GPL, and you can check the file cpudetect.c (or something like that) for run-time processor detection. It detects the processor type, cache informations, features like TSC istruction, SIMD instrctions... Using preprocessor macros the file is compiled for different systems (also solaris), so you can study that piece of code...

    IMHO The MPlayer source code is a little confused, but it's great!

    Remeber the GPL power.
