I'm not familiar with GAR.  What would that mean for me exactly?

I'm not building an OpenCSW project, I am porting nss_db to Solaris:

It's coming along well, but I got stuck with the argp dependency.  I thought libgnu_dev would help me, but as you know I then discovered that the library didn't actually include argp.

I'll probably need to pull out the argp source files and insert them directly into my modified build directory to carry on.  I've not had much luck with gnulib-tool, it doesn't want to work on this source tree.

Best regards,
