Solaris 8 SPARC & Intel editions seem similar:

/export/home/cvsusr:$ uname -a
SunOS pro720 5.8 Generic_108529-17 i86pc i386 i86pc

/export/home/cvsusr:$ ksh
/export/home/cvsusr:$ which which
/export/home/cvsusr:$ file /usr/bin/which
/usr/bin/which: executable /usr/bin/csh script
/export/home/cvsusr:$ exit

/export/home/cvsusr:$ csh
pro720% which which
pro720% exit

/export/home/cvsusr:$ sh
${PWD}:$ which which
${PWD}:$ exit

/export/home/cvsusr:$ bash
/export/home/cvsusr:$ which which
/export/home/cvsusr:$ exit
