Speaking of, is there any chance that bootstrap-pkgsrc can be fixed
for Solaris?

Right now, /opt/SUNWspro/bin/cc can't be used because the recommended
/usr/ucb/install trashes SUNWspro binaries when it tries to strip
them and /usr/sbin/install uses different arguments. And you can't
use std gcc version 3.x because it apparently isn't compatible with
how devel/m4's configure handles /usr/ucb/install's test for make.
And gcc version 2.95.3, if you do build it outside of pkgsrc, still
doesn't handle things like automatically including socket libraries,
