Jim, I believe Mike is correct, as usual.  I run both Solaris and Linux
development systems.  My Solaris systems had the same problems you
experienced, so I just installed manually instead of using the canned
routine as Mike lists above.  Works just fine.

In operation, when wanting to stop or restart IC, you might find
it easiest to just do a:

pkill -u whatever_your_interchange_username_is

The problem with the IC process(es) not stopping in Solaris began,
I think, in either very late 4.8.x or early 4.9.x.
