[ntp:questions] PPS signal on Solaris 9

While supplying PPS signal to Solaris 9 x86 (via RS port and DCD-pin),
I have got a message:

[daemon.notice] refclock_ioctl: optional ppsclock streams module

As a result PPS interfares the GPS_HP driver and boths are ignored
by the system after the while. Without PPS, GPS_HP driver works fine.

The ppsclock module is apparently missing and kernel does not support
PPS signal.
Does the module exist in the standard implementation of Solaris 9?
Where to find  the module and how to enable it?
Can you recommend any reference or FAQ which describes the problem?

I use Solaris 9 x86 (Kernel 112234-05 Feb 2003) and have
ntp v.3. standard.
My configuration file is as follows:
server	prefer
fudge time1 -0.955
fudge flag3 1
