The following six gettext tests fail on Solaris:

- ext/gettext/tests/gettext_basic-enus.phpt
- ext/gettext/tests/gettext_bindtextdomain-cwd.phpt
- ext/gettext/tests/gettext_dcgettext.phpt
- ext/gettext/tests/gettext_dgettext.phpt
- ext/gettext/tests/gettext_dngettext-plural.phpt
- ext/gettext/tests/gettext_ngettext.phpt

They fail, because they set locale to en_US.UTF-8, but the message catalog used in the tests is located in ext/gettext/tests/locale/en.

On Linux, gettext() has a fallback behavior. If it can't find the message for a certain locale, it will try other similar locals. So after looking for en_US.UTF-8, it checks en_US and finally en. But this behavior is a non-standard extension. On Solaris, gettext() will not fall back from en_US.UTF-8 to en.

The problem can be fixed for any platform, by moving the directory with the test message catalog to the correct place:

- move ext/gettext/tests/locale/en to ext/gettext/tests/locale/en_US.UTF-8
- move ext/gettext/tests/locale/fi to ext/gettext/tests/locale/fi_FI
