I set this before I compiled (export MKSRC=/var/tmp/bmake/mk)

but it barfed:

19855:  open64("/usr/share/mk", O_RDONLY|O_NDELAY)      Err#2 ENOENT
19855:  open64("/usr/local/share/mk", O_RDONLY|O_NDELAY) Err#2 ENOENT

19855:  ioctl(1, TCGETA, 0xFFBED7AC)                    = 0

bmake: stopped in /var/tmp/bmake/bmake

so I symlinked /var/tmp/bmake/mk /usr/share/mk

then i copied /usr/pkgsrc/mk/bsd* to /var/tmp/bmake/mk b/c it barfed again:

$ ./bmake -V MACHINE
bmake: "/var/tmp/bmake/bmake/Makefile" line 77: Could not find
bmake: "/var/tmp/bmake/bmake/Makefile" line 78: Could not find
bmake: Fatal errors encountered -- cannot continue

so i moved /var/tmp/bmake/bmake/mk to /var/tmp/bmake/mk and got:

$ ./bmake -V MACHINE  
$ ./bmake -V MACHINE_ARCH

see above.

Okay.  Also, someone, I forget who, said that putting MACHINE_ARCH=sparc in /etc/mk.conf will do the same thing.  Its sort of moot --- I found out that in order to get wheel mice to work with sunrays I need to first upgrade to Solaris 9, then upgrade the sunray server software, hence why I've been fiddling with pkgsrc on Solaris 9 (which is working quite nicely, btw).

3.1.18 seems to work nicely, once I've got all the mk files in the right place (note that I did have the pkgsrc tree at /usr/pkgsrc at the time I was running these tests)
