I think we would be better off providing some kind of
"opensolaris_compat" package, or set of packages.
(and probably putting it in a side tree, not our usual mirror subdirs)

I dont think we should be needlessly duplicating stuff in PROPER
solaris, because of opensolaris.

Unless this version of libslp is somehow "better" than the version
shipped in solaris, I dont think it's good to ship it.
