Any help is greatly appreciate and I think what you guys are doing is
really great!

My problem is:

I have followed the instruction posted on the blastwave.org site step by
step (several times actually!)

No matter what I do, when I try and install the common package (or another
package depends upon it and attempt an install) I get the following errors:

# ./pkg-get -i common
No existing install of CSWcommon found. Installing...
md5 utility temporarily non-functional
assuming local file common-1.4.2-SunOS5.8-sparc-CSW.pkg.gz valid to use
ld.so.1: grep: fatal: libgcc_s.so.1: open failed: No such file or directory
./pkg-get[4]: 2671 Killed

## Executing checkinstall script.

Cannot continue. You need patch 110934 installed
Just in case you have a slow download link, this script will
sleep for 60 seconds, to give you a chance to make
a copy of any downloaded files in /var/run before they are
For extra time, suspend (^Z) this script

Now quitting with failure status
pkgadd: ERROR: checkinstall script did not complete successfully

Installation of <CSWcommon> failed.
No changes were made to the system.
ERROR: could not add CSWcommon.

Again - any help is more than welcome!

Thank again to all.
