we are having some problems installing TeXLive on an old SPARC SOLARIS:

SunOS xxx 5.7 Generic_106541-11 sun4u sparc SUNW,UltraSPARC-IIi-cEngine

TeXLive installs correctly (or at least it doesn't report any error) but
then the system does not work. For example, running pdftex results in:

ld.so.1: pdftex: errore fatale:libCstd.so.1: impossibile aprire: File o
directory non trovati

while trying to run some scripts (e.g., texconfig) result in errors

$ texconfig formats
texconfig: analyzing old configuration...
kpsewhich: unrecognized option `--var-value=TEXMFMAIN'
/usr/local/texlive/2007/bin/sparc-solaris/fmtutil: /texconfig/tcfmgr: not found

even if the environment has been setup correctly (all needed TEXMFXXX
variables correctly defined; we have TeXLive running fine on other

Any ideas? Or is this machine simply too old to run TeXLIve?

Thank you very much for your time,
