I am not sure if Sun got mmap correct in 2.8 (unpatched), but your problem
seems to have a boundary similar with a problem I had in solaris 2.6 recently.

after you configure (but before compile) of cvs Version >1.11.1p1  make the
following change in config.h:

diff config.h.normal config.h
< #define HAVE_MMAP 1
> /*#define HAVE_MMAP 1*/

compile and try your hand tests with this version.

If this fixes your problem then it looks like you have a couple of options:
1) live with this no mmap version, and remember that you have to mod the
config.h file when putting new versions on because there is no --disable-mmap
option to configure.
2) patch the sun box up and see if that fixes it, with possible reversion to
option 1.

bonus option) slack off less than Todd and make a patch+doc_update to the
source adding a --disable-mmap config option and get Larry or Derek to apply
