802.1x supplicant for Solaris sparc hosts?

It looks like OpenSolaris itself can be built for sparc platforms, but
the documentation in the wpa_supplicant package specifies linux, FreeBSD
or windows only are supported. I tried to compile and don't get very far
before it bombs out with "make: *** [../src/crypto/tls_openssl.o] Error
The make gets past a ton of tls_openssl.c lines, but the first
tls_openssl.o line it sees makes the process die. 
Any ideas?

I made sure that my LD_LIB_PATH includes ssl libraries that were on the
system already. 

Thanks for responding,

I have no idea about Solaris 8, but Sun has ported wpa_supplicant for
OpenSolaris and it was integrated into build 64 (see wpad(1M)). I don't
know how easy it would be to get this running on your system, but at
least the source code for this is available:
