I don't know whether anybody is using Bro with live traffic but it
used to work for me offline on Solaris 9 (iirc, the last version I
tried was 1.1).

It's supposed to compile on Solaris without requiring patches. Can
you send us the error messages as well as which tweaks you did to
get it to compile?

Regarding the core dumps, can you compile a debug version (configure
--enable-debug) and send a stack backtrace? (And one thing also
worth trying is reading a larger trace instead of running live,
which as said I've never tried on Solaris).
