I have a basic question about the wrapper framework.  On solaris 
devel/nss thinks you are using SunPRO compilers even though I'm using 
gcc on my solaris-2.9 box.  Is the correct approach to modify the 
package to try to use gcc options and then the wrapper framework can 
translate that to what SunPRO would want if you're on a system with the 
SunPRO compilers?  Or should wrapper/transform-solaris-gcc be expanded 
to try and translate the SunPRO flags to those that gcc likes?  I guess 
the problem is that you don't want to apply transform-solaris-gcc in 
this case when the build system for some package is already using gcc flags.

Thanks for any clarifications.
