At present roughly half of pkgsrc builds on Solaris. Recent infrastructure 
changes have made a significant difference on Solaris, and should prove to 
be useful in fixing common problems in the not too distant future.

There are a few of us running regular bulk builds on Solaris, and a number 
of people using pkgsrc in production environments on Solaris.

If there are packages you care about on Solaris, please do report them. If 
you have patches that fix them, even better. :)
