Just some small points:
* It might be easier to set USE_PKGSRC_GCC=yes and GCC_REQD?=3 rather than
directly including the gcc3 .mk files.
* I'm surprised to see db4 failing. It's been building fine for me on
Solaris 9 and Solaris 10. Perhaps nawk was substantially improved in
* gdk-pixbuf could probably do with rm -f, rather than just rm.
* sylpheed-gtk2 - does setting LDFLAGS.SunOS+= -lsocket -lnsl -lX11 in the
package Makefile help?
* libgcrypt - I fixed a problem with gcc on SPARC on the 25th Oct. Are you
sure you have this patch?
* kdelibs3 - I've had some success building this with gcc on Solaris 10
recently. I've committed all my patches.
My compilation environment:
Clean Solaris 10 install (a recent internal build) plus Companion CD (for
/etc/mk.conf as generated by bootstrap, plus USE_PKGSRC_GCC and
PKG_DEVELOPER. So I've been building with gcc2 as built from pkgsrc where
