Well if you are a US goverment talk to the NSA to pull out the source

Or pay Mozilla Foundation to build it for you.

If you have this requirement to build your software. Why do you use
Solaris anyway?

Sorry for the harsh tune (must be the flu drugs :))

I don't think there will be much luck in getting this done in opencsw.
