It's not a trivial build. I have attempted to build it in March 2012.
I was in contact with the developers and got 3 patches pushed
upstream[1][2][3]. I spent a few weeks trying to build it, and
ultimately gave up. The last state was that the code compilation
finished, but the resulting binary was not able to play anything.
Maybe I missed something silly, or maybe there is a more involved
problem to get fixed. The VLC build is up for grabs.

Also, there was a Solaris porting effort[4], but it looks dead, it's
better to stay with the mainline code.
