Is the supplicant used here the same that is described on the following
OpenSolaris page?

If yes, porting seems to have included breaking the coding style (well,
okay, changing it ;-) which makes it bit more difficult to compare the
version to wpa_supplicant releases. Anyway, the EAP code in wpa-0.1
seems to be based on wpa_supplicant 0.2.x and if you can built that
yourself for Solaris, you might be able to just drop in eap_ttls.c from
wpa_supplicant 0.2.8, change the eap_method_ttls initialization in the
end of eap_ttls.c to use older style (remove the ".variable = " part),
add eap_ttls and -DEAP_TTLS into Makefile, and build.. If you diff
eap_tls.c from wpa-0.1 and wpa_supplicant 0.2.8, you should be able to
see what type of changes was done and ignoring the whitespace changes,
the structure initialization in the end seemed to be the only real
