I'm part of the TeX Live team that every (northern) winter produces a
new release; many O/S distributions then take up that release and
repackage it according to their preferences.

Due to space limitations on the physical DVD that is produced each
spring, binaries are included only for the most widely used platforms.
However, at Utah, I make a point of doing test builds for many more,
and I can report that this year, with newer compilers on Oracle
Solaris 11.4, there were few problems in building a complete TeX Live
2021 set of binaries.  

The current status report is here:


The section on Solaris 11.4 on amd64 is at this URL:


I have several machines running various releases of the Illumos /
OpenIndiana / Omnios / Tribblix / ...  family, and I'll attempt a
similar build on one or more of those systems in the next week or two.
