Summary:                    Not all files in the .pkg datastream get installed??
This is an odd one.  I'm on Solaris 10 5/09.  I installed the
subversion-1.6.6,REV=2009.11.14-SunOS5.8-i386-CSW.pkg.gz package
and the file
did not get installed. No error message was produced. Its name
was not in the list of filenames output during installation. Its
name IS IN the pkgmap. But pkgchk completes successfully and never
complains about the file being missing.

The file IS PRESENT in the second cpio archive making up the
.pkg file.  In fact, I have installed it by hand now, just by
uncompressing the .pkg.gz file, splitting apart the two cpio
archives with dd, and using cpio to extract the file.  Nothing
wrong with the file.

Could something obscure be making the Solaris pkg tools just fail
to process that particular file?  this is shaking my faith in the
packaging system.

Unfortunately I omitted the specific revision which I had pushed to testing
in my last note. It is subversion-1.6.6,REV=2010.01.19 for which I would
appreciate testing feedback. It has seen a couple of tweaks to the build.
>From changelog.CSW:

  * Non-maintainer submission.
  * Restricted cswpycompile usage to python modules. (Closes
  * Corrected libsvn_ra_dav-1.so.0 symlinks. (Closes
  * Dropped openssl_rt dependency (neon with SSL support is built
  * Dropped kerberos dependency (neon comes with Kerberos support).
  * Dropped libnet dependency (not required).
  * Reordered RUNPATH and introduced $ISALIB for /opt/csw/lib/,

It passes all the tests and I have had it in use for about a week now.
Additional feedback would still be appreciated.
