Did you check the solaris page in the wiki?

I suggest you do the following:

1/untar the source package from our website into a directory gramps
2/cd gramps/src
3/cp const.py.in const.py
4/python gramps.py

Now, this will probably crash with some missing python packages, so you need to install those.
Eg, what you write would make me think that

 import pygtk

causes a crash because python gtk bindings are not there.
So install it if that is the case. You can use a python console to test if your install have the correct result:
$ python
Python 2.5.2 (r252:60911, Oct  5 2008, 19:29:17)
[GCC 4.3.2] on linux2
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> import pygtk
>>> import gtk
>>> gtk.gtk_version
(2, 14, 4)

Note that you don't have languages installed like that, and the install is local.
To install the languages you can see if gnu toolchain is there:

cd gramps/po
make install

So you do the install in the po dir only and have then the languages installed.
Same for mime-types in the data dir.

So, what I mean is, GRAMPS needs no compilation, so there is no real need to use the make system. That is just an easy way on linux to guarantee all is in place and do localization and install.
Please update the Solaris wiki page when finished.

I've been trying to install various versions of gramps on Solaris 10
with no success.  The error message is always the same:
checking Python bindings for gtk2.10 (pygtk2>=2.10.0)... [7324 refs]
configure: error:

**** The python bindings for gtk 2.4 (pygtk2>=2.10.0) could not be found.

And, I don't get it either, since I do have this binding installed.
Any ideas?  I have all the latest requirements installed from
blastwave AFAICT.
