This is possible.  Under both Solaris 2.5 and 2.5.1, I have had much luck
mountng the Solaris "s5fs" volumes under the respective port of NetBSD on
the same machine, as well as reading and writing data to the partitions.
I am not quite sure how *safe* it is to write to the drives, but mounting
read only has caused absolutly no noticable problems.

Good luck,
