I used to be able to build about 2x more packages on Solaris using
Zoularis than I can now. Out of the 88 'meta' packages I would like
to build, only 26 of them now do so. Including dependencies, it's
only building 93 packages so far and that requires building things
in particular sequences (lang/gawk), etc.

By 'very few packages left which did not build', do you mean out
of your list of desired packages?
