This works as below for the commercial Solaris version on my machine:

erl +A10
Erlang (BEAM) emulator version 5.0.2.2 [threads]

Eshell V5.0.2.2 (abort with ^G)
1> erlang:system_info(thread_pool_size).
10

The version I compiled from open source gives the same response as you got.

I wonder if the little [threads] logo might give a clue ??

Rgds,
Sean
