Hi Mike,

In case you haven't gotten an answer already...to build the
multiprocessor version of BLAST, you will need to modify the
ncbi/make/makeall.unx file (line 410) by replacing
-DNCBI_NOTHREADS_AVAIL with -D_POSIX_THREADS:

ncbithrs.o: ncbithrs.c
    $(CC) -D_POSIX_THREADS $(CFLAGS) ncbithrs.c

I have some web pages on building and running BLAST...they are written
for SGI/IRIX systems, but you may still find them useful for running on
SUN/Solaris systems.  The porting notes are here:

And the known problems and fixes are here:

Thanks, and good luck!
