Ok, I'll check that out.  I've spent my (spare) cycles today builing a
package using the docs available and have had decent success.  My
current issues (that I'm aware of) are that I end up depending on some
in house packages left around from years ago (this is a sol8 system that
I'm building on presently).  I either need to pull in some extra
blastwave packages to supercede these local (and very stale) versions or
alter a LIBPATH variable somewhere in a makefile to have the /opt/csw
versions take precedence.

Otherwise, for my first crack at building a proper package on solaris,
I'm in good shape, I think.

All of the docs reference logging into a build farm...Is this something
I'd be able to do also?
