I just looked: you can just leave trunk alone as Solaris 10 unstable does not ship
gnulinks any more.

Well, there is no official naming for branches. Just name it with a sensible name,
„solaris9“ looks fine for me.

Please always use „svn“ commands to keep the history, e.g.
  svn cp trunk branches/solaris9

Just „cd gnulinks/branches/solaris9“ and work as you would have been in trunk/

The tree is more like a convention, not a strict specification. We don’t have
a strict setup for Solaris-version-specific packages.
