Re: 2017Q2 devel/libuv on Solaris 10 workaround

Hi Michel!

See pkg/52245. The problem (I guess) is, that distinguishing Solaris
10 and 11 in pkgsrc is not easy, both are labelled "SunOS", together
with all the surviving descendants of OpenSolaris.

Get used to have a bunch of local fixes on Solaris. You can apply
fixes like this locally, I keep track of them with RCS. If you need to
fix the sources of a package, define LOCALPATCHES in mk.conf and keep
your own patches there. Do report these changes back to pkgsrc,
sometimes (well, often :) they are used. But for cases like this you
will need local workarounds.
