On our Solaris 8 (Sparc) I found /usr/sbin/snmp_trapsend which seems to be
what you need. I've never tested it and am not a Solaris guru so you'll have
to try yourself ;)

I use the output alert_syslog option in snort.conf to log to syslog. If you
would prefer a single file for snort alerts you might use
output alert_syslog: LOG_LOCAL0 LOG_ALERT LOG_PID

and edit /etc/syslog.conf and add something like
local0.*	<put-in-your-path-and-filename-here>

Ahm, I tested this with linux, should be similiar with solaris.

Then use swatch to send trap.
