    ld.so.1: xzdec.x86_64-solaris: fatal: relocation error: file tlpkg/installer/xz/xzdec.x86_64-solaris: symbol htonll: referenced symbol not found

The x86_64-solaris binaries are built for a newer version of the os than

    I tried removing the included
    tlpkg/installer/xz/xzdec.x86_64-solaris binary and adding a symlink

You have to symlink xzdec and tar as well as xz.  Also, that would only
get you through instalation, the actual tex programs would still fail.

Hope this helps,
