Not specific to your request, but a good general resource.
Off the top of my head:
-A lot of software goes in /opt by default.
-Similar tool to sysctl is ndd.
-Various compilation issues due to the fact that Sun doesn't use gcc by
default, and doesn't COME with their own compiler (commercial offering).
-Lot of NIS stuff still lurking.
-System startup is controlled by script execution, in my IMHO where key
system variables are stored and documentation of user script additions is
-In general, Solaris is set up by default with the assumption that the box
is a participant in an enterprise Sun environment. This affects the
services that run by default, etc. It makes it initially confusing, as it
is not clear what does what and what the dependencies are.
-Patch system for maintenance.
