In theory I would say yes, but in practice probably not because most
3rd Party stuff doesn't have a "standard" location and most also don't
have the concept of patching and versioning that Solaris uses so dynamically
link OS libraries but static for thinks like OpenSSL libcrypto is fine
as long as you know the pit falls I outlined.

In Solaris 8 yes, using crle(1).
