Are you certain that the type 36 driver is being compiled and linked?  I 
was getting a similar message when I tried to bring up a Motorola Oncore 
about a year ago.  It turned out that the driver was not included in the 
executable; a fact that we established by doing something like
# strings ntpd |grep Oncore
and not finding the string "Oncore".

It turned out that some recent changes to the driver prevented it from 
building on Solaris.
