The info directory contains the full help documents, which can be opened with 
the "info" command in GNU/Linux. Not sure if it also exists in Solaris, but 
if it doesn't exist then try installing the GNU Texinfo.

The share directory usually contains some data files used by the program, such 
as l10n data.

also for others I think you just need to symlink the bin and man directory as 
the program will try to read the required data in your --prefix directory
