Not as far as I can see.  Solaris /bin/awk doesn't have the match and
sub functions, and has several other limitations over POSIX awk.

The Autoconf manual documents some of these limitations
and the gawk manual has a pretty informative section about awks too

On Solaris, you should be able to use nawk or /usr/xpg4/bin/awk.
