GNU texinfo 3.9
What is it
GNU texinfo 3.9 is a documentation system that uses a single source file
to produce both on-line information and printed output. This means that
instead of writing two different documents, one for the on-line help
or other on-line information and the other for a typeset manual or
other printed work, you need write only one document. When the work
is revised, you need revise only one document.
You can read the on-line information, known as an "Info file", with an
Info documentation-reading program.
Programs included in the software are often needed when installing other
software, so installation is recommeneded.

There are no specific OS dependancies compiled into GNUtexinfo to my knowledge.
You can choose the version closest to your Solaris release, (i.e. the 2.5
version is suitable for 2.5 and above, and possibly earlier if you are
feeling brave and there is no specific earlier Solaris option). Of course
if there is a specific version for your Solaris release, install that.
