I have already got pkgsrc running on Tru64 for a while, see The snapshot is a couple of
weeks old and is not based on the newest bootstrap.
It _does_ however include libtool patches that make shared
library handling pkgsrc-friendly.
I also have several x11-links, xpkgwedge and buildlink3-patches
in my local tree scheduled to go into the next snapshot.

It's nice to see that I'm not the only one interested in
pkgsrc on Tru64.
