You compiled R yourself from sources. None of these .so files came with 
R, so it looks like you still haven't got the installation right.

Hear, hear! I'm interested to see your list of packages that you believe 
are not available for R-2.14.0 but for other versions. Or in other 
words: That is not true.

For the specific case of x86 Solaris:
According to the CRAN check summary for that platform "a lot" means that 
just 126 out of 3210 give ERRORs and few others may be on a stoplist.

Indeed, Rcpp's latest release has some problem on Solaris, see:
Please talk to the package maintainer in such a case.

Please talk to the package maintainer in such a case.
