So to get Solaris binaries functioning on NetBSD, do I need to copy the   
libraries into /emul/ibmcs2/.

Then do I need to do a ldconfig /emul/ibmcs2/usr/lib ?

I am getting an, Exec format error. Wrong Architecture, with   
dynamically-linked files but statically-linked files like csh and cal are   
working fine.

This is good, since Solaris x86 binaries don't seem to work consistantly
well on Solaris 2.4 for x86.  Solaris 2.x x86 is awful.  At my previous
job we found that dynamically linked SVR4 binaries from other SVR4 intel
ports just plain don't work on Solaris x86 because the X11 shared   
are not quite the same...
