Dell 'dset' utility for non-linux and non-windows boxen

Hi Harald,

Solaris and OpenSolaris are supposed to be Supported - Dell made
various announcements during 2007
that Solaris and OpenSolaris are both supported.  Yet there is no
'dset' binaries for this supported operating system which I just find
strange - it would be useful for some sort of scripts to be provided
in the case where dset is not provided for.
