It wasn't added until Solaris 10 update 10 (or the equivalent kernel 
jumbo patch, which would also update libc), so you would really need to 
upgrade or install the latest Solaris 10 recommended patch cluster to 
get this functionality.  It is fairly recent, from 2011.

You can check as follows:

# /usr/ccs/bin/nm /usr/lib/libc.so.1 |grep asprintf

If the symbol is there it will show up in the output.  Otherwise you are 
downrev on patches.
