The default methods of starting X on Solaris pass "-depth 24" on the command
line, which overrides the xorg.conf file.   You can change the depth they
pass by running:

svccfg -s svc:/application/x11/x11-server setprop options/default_depth=16

(See the Xserver(1) man page on Solaris for more details.)
