Noone tried so far :-) Take a look at
pkgsrc/meta-pkgs/xorg/Makefile.common and create an appropiate OS
section for Solaris. Feel free to contact me directly for question.
As a warning from someone who had to trace down many issues already,
always log the full build output and set PKG_DEVELOPER=yes. It comes in
handy when debugging.

BTW, is this Solaris on Sparc?
