I too am trying to build pkgs for Solaris(8) and MacOS and while
the recent pkgsrc/bootstrap changes have made a lot of progress,
pkgsrc still can't get much past the basic pkgs on either platform.

tk, qt, similar problems. On os/x, dynamic loading doesn't work so
all of the Python shared libraries fail to load, etc. which was
one of my main reasons for trying to use pkgsrc on os/x.

BTW, how do you handle the problems with /usr/bin/awk on both of
these platforms? I have to build gawk first, before almost anything
else, and after that is installed I have to add AWK=/usr/pkg/bin/gawk
to /etc/mk.conf.

For Solaris8, I set PKGSRC_COMPILER=sunpro, which gets me going
with building simple pkgs but the sunpro compiler can't build
lang/gcc3 so I hit the wall fairly quickly. This gets me further
than using the sun gcc3.3 package, but by not much.
