Got only one response, from Kevin Sheehan, who supplied a pointer to tablet
His full response follows.
I haven't been able to find any digitizing tablets that actually say they will
work with anything later than Solaris 2.4, even using the Sun Solutions CD.
I will keep searching, as modifying/rewriting the driver is beyond the scope
of the time committment I can make for this project.

At any rate, the short version is that STREAMS has indeed been a moving
target around 2.4, but that source for a tablet driver is available.
Most of the tablet drivers out there have a common ancestor, the current
incarnation of which seems to live at:
under Driver Sources. If you get SUNWdrvs.tar.Z there is a Wacom tablet
driver, which from (ancient) memory is not too tough to change. Most
tablets out there look like a GTCO/Summagraphics one way or another...
