No, because you have read the release notes for Sun Studio 12.
Sun Studio 12.1 is really Sun Studio 13, but you know due to
the Knight Templar slaughtering 13 is unlucky and therefore
SS 13 has been called 12.1 and SS 14 has been called 12.2.
Despite the similar names these are major releases.
As you see from the proper release notes for 12.1 at
it requires at least Solaris 10 1/06 and in fact does not
work on Solaris 9 due to missing libraries.

Sun Studio 12 is btw installed on current9* as default compiler:
