There's some research supporting your view, apparently if you compile
Perl on Solaris 8 or 9 as we do it will leak some memory, even when
run on Solaris 10. Only way to avoid this is to compile on Solaris 10.

Good news is that our next update to Perl will be built separately on
Solaris 9 and 10 to avoid this problem. We will also enable DTrace
support for the Solaris 10 Perl to help you and others with debugging.
