Thanks for all the assistance and feedback about the CSW packaging process

I've finally got the unofficial 3.1.3 code into testing now - feedback 
is welcome

Please note the following about versions:

3.1.2 is the latest official release - this builds successfully on 
Solaris 10 with Sun Studio 12, no patching required - it doesn't build 
successfully on Sun Studio 11 or Solaris 8 (multiple issues)

3.1.3 is not yet in the RC stage, but very close to it - I have used the 
code from the monitor-core-3.1 branch upstream, and built a sample 3.1.3 
package which is now in OpenCSW testing.  During this process, I 
identified one further change that is required to support Sun Studio 11, 
otherwise, it seems to be good for Solaris 8 and above, Sun Studio 11 or 12.

For a bare minimum install:
- put ganglia_agent on all machines to be monitored
- put ganglia_web on the machine which is meant to be the monitoring server
- restart Apache on the monitoring server
- browse to http://<monitoring-server>/ganglia/

The agent interoperates smoothly with the Linux agent on the same network.

Any feedback is welcome - if anyone has configuration/deployment 
questions outside the scope of OpenCSW, please feel free to email me 
personally or use the Ganglia discussion lists.
