Historically in the jdk repo "solaris" means "not-windows".

That -server is a recognized flag/directive for the launcher.

It isn't necessary in that if you don't have a server VM you should 
build with BUILD_CLIENT_ONLY, and if you do that then it generates a 
jvm.cfg that aliases server to client. So the new file will only be used 
if you don't set BUILD_CLIENT_ONLY, and in that case one would presume 
you did have a server VM, so the KNOWN value would be appropriate.
