Please note that no recent version of PA works on Solaris. There
is noone who's keeping the ports to legacy operating systems up to
date, so expect breakage. Lots of breakage.

Consider upgrading to Linux. While audio on Linux isn't all that
great, it's not as horrible as audio on Solaris. Not

Doing timing relevant audio with the Solaris audio interfaces is not
a particularly good idea anyway.

I fear there is noone with expertise in either Solaris nor CSound
around, so you are on your own.
