Wow... evidently I am the only admin that doesnt know the
answer to this considering the response:) Thanks all..

Answer: Basically everyone suggested to use 'ldd' <binary name>
        to determine what libraries the program was using
        and copy those over to the other system.

Original Question is at the Bottom..

Thanks go out to!

Original Question:

> Folks,
> I have some C code that I compiled on one box and I need
> to copy the binaries over to another box to run them.
> Unfortunatly the box that it is going to was loaded with
> an end user load of solaris and it doesnt appear to have
> all the necessary shared libraries installed to run the
> program since it doesnt do anything. Is there a command
> in Solaris 2.5.1 that can tell me what libraries.. etc
> a binary file requires to run? Or is there one or two specific
> 2.5.1 packages (sparc) that contain all the libarries that
> are necessary to support compiled/compiling applications?
> I put gcc on the destination machine in the hopes that it
> would provide the support necessary, but gcc couldnt compile
> squat (I guess cause of lack of libraries). How would I
> transform a end user load into a developers load of solaris
> with no down time basically?
