Hm. Our build system was written on Solaris 10, and I'm not sure what
could be potential problems on other systems. I know that Dago has put
some work into running it on Solaris 11, with building IPS packages in
mind. To just build Solaris 10 packages, I'd say that setting up a
build environment on Solaris 10 would be the safest bet. I'm thinking
what would be the requirements for a build host; the first thing that
comes to mind is the basic utilities: pkgadd, pkginfo, pkgmk,
pkgparam, pkgproto, pkgtrans, pkgrm. If your host can't have them,
then it can't be a packaging host.
