There're two easy ways out of the box that I see currently:

A) using a requesthandler with a TermsComponent

Advantage: easy and fast
Disadvantage: no filter queries

B) using faceting with facet.prefix and an emtpy q parameter (don't  
forget to set rows=0)

Advantage: you can use filter queries and pretty much anything else  
that works with the standard request handler
Disadvantage: it's a bit slower than the TermsComponent
Note: There might be room for improvement by configuring a dedicated  
request handler with only a faceting component

With our TYPO3 Solr integration we first went with A, but then had to  
switch to B as we needed filters. So I would suggest to go with B.
