SUMMARY: Binary Compatibility Libraries

No binary compatiblity libraries are necessary between Solaris 2.6 and
Solaris 7.  The only binary compatiblity libraries are for the older
Solaris 1.1.x (aka SunOS 4.1.x), these are necessary because the older
release was a BSD based system and Solaris 2.x is SVR4.

Applications compiled under 2.6 should have no problems running in 
Solaris 7.

To find out what binary compatibility libraries are installed on your
pkginfo | grep -i comp
The output should be similar to the following:

sys_prompt% pkginfo | grep -i binary
system      SUNWbcp        SunOS 4.x Binary Compatibility
system      SUNWowbcp      OpenWindows binary compatibility
system      SUNWscbcp      SPARCompilers Binary Compatibility Libraries

Thank you goes to:
