Support for netty-tcnative-boringssl-static for Solaris platform

Hi Team,

I'm using Eclipse's vertx toolkit for my project which has dependency on io.netty jars.

We are also using netty-tcnative-boringssl-static, this artifact is statically linked against Google's boringssl, which is a fork of OpenSSL that has a reduced code footprint and additional features (such as ALPN). The static linking makes it easier to get started using tcnative on a system without having to worry about additional install steps. 

Reference :

As of today, netty-tcnative-boringssl-static doesn't have support for Oracle Solaris 10 platform. So, as suggested by the netty developers, we need to manually build the jar for this platform. 

Can you please help here with build steps for Solaris platform? This is super critical for us, and we are currently blocked without your support.

    You would need to look at the build steps for Linux provided by the upstream project and adjust accordingly. We cannot provide build instructions for another company's software that we know nothing about.

    Of course, it will be much easier on a modern platform such as Solaris 11.4 instead of a 16-year old platform such as Solaris 10, as far more dependencies will be available as part of the Solaris 11.4 package repository.
