A general fix needs some effort to get a combined view for all Solaris releases packages
are build for. As the problem is rather specific I suggest you just skip this one
modulation manually:

# Solaris 9 package does not contain 64 bit on i386 as we have a separate Solaris 10 package
SKIP_MODULATIONS-5.9 += isa-amd64

Best regards
