you wont find it since it's only avail. for sol 9 and 10, as part of
opensolaris or SunFreeware, depending on the exact solaris you've
installed (boxed or open)

no, the ports can be used for anything. The only showstopper is the
kernel support (for ugen), and the software (need libusb + nut)

So it's better to stick to serial, while waiting for sol 9 or 10
upgrade. A last solution, but not really reliable and that need some
twicks, is there:
