Compiling www/libproxy on Solaris fails, because libsocket and libnsl are not

LIBS.SunOS+=    -lnsl -lsocket

is ignored. Maybe at some time in the past libproxy did not use cmake.

In addition, the unrecognized linker flag "--no-as-needed" is used in 


To fix the first problem, this line has to be added to CMakeLists.txt:

set(CMAKE_EXE_LINKER_FLAGS "-lnsl -lsocket")

To fix the second problem, this part in libmodman/test/CMakeLists.txt has to be 

      set_property(TARGET ${name} PROPERTY
                   LINK_FLAGS -Wl,--no-as-needed)

I have not found a way to enclose the first fix in an appropriate condition or

first and removing the second piece of code unconditionally. Someone with more
