Ok, please give the packages in testing a try.


Modeled after the ones in current, i.e. no spearate devel package, no
pkg/swname changes. Should be least intrusive. File clash on
/opt/csw/lib/{sparcv9,amd64}/charset.alias with gnugpg is known and
already filed [1]. Shouldn't do any harm though, the files are identical.
