OK that explains it Jan.  Thanks for the information.  Looking closely 
at the binaries supplied at nodejs.org they are only for x86.  I'll let 
my developers know that Node.js is not an option on sparc.

Thanks Ben, for clarifying that the website shows the i386 catalog.  The 
OpenCSW team may want to consider making that clear in the description 
at the top of the software list web site since it only mentions it's the 
*unstable* branch and not the *i386 unstable* branch.

I know it's probably already been discussed but either on the software 
list page or when you click on the detail link for a piece of software 
(like Node.js) you may want to include the platform(s) available for the 
software.  I'm assuming more than this software is only available on one 
solaris platform but maybe I'm wrong.

Thanks everyone for your help, I'm all set,
