Command ar is the standard library tool needed for creating libraries. Also
you will most likely need ld command which is needed for linking
executables. These are standard binutils that usually come with compiler.
On Solaris computers they can be found in /usr/ccs/bin (add this directory
to your PATH). If you for some reason don't have Solaris binutils, you can
try to find GNU binutils but I would recommend using native Solaris
