Neat, well, if you're interested I've put my hacky script up

Currently assumes a store/zones zfs mounted as /store, /netbsd/pkgsrc
containing latest tree, and perhaps some other stuff.

Next up is to see if pbulk now works on Solaris so I can boot up 4
zones and have all cores busy, it still takes a couple of days to do a
full build using mk/bulk/build in just one zone.

Maybe one day we can tidy this stuff up and put it in pkgsrc, along
with a VBoxManage/jumpstart recipe for OpenSolaris (I'm still working
on that one).
