That's because Solaris by default uses a traditional Bourne shell, and the 
tests are written in GNU bash.
If you replace the line 

 export STAT_CONFIG_PATH=$top_srcdir/config



then that should fix that particular problem. 

But it's quite likely that there are other Bash specific constructs in the
tests.  I suppose we should either:

a) purge all the tests of Bash specific things;


b) change the header of the tests from #!/bin/sh to #!/bin/bash
