Perhaps, but I also notice the lag establishing external connections.

Huh? Is this voodoo? I'm issuing the traceroute *from* an Irix box and the
lag is occurring on the firewall, which is a Solaris 2.5.1 box.

It occurs when I use strictly IP addresses, as well.
So far I've received a thundering silence with regard to this. Surely
there are others running Checkpoint on Solaris who are either 1) happy
with their performance because there is no similar lag, or 2) experiencing
this "perceived" lag and there's something in these suggestions that would
account for the lag, and I'm simply oblivious to this Solaris-truth.
