Can the solaris pkg be installed easily on a machine where I have no
superuser privileges (without doing it "by hand")?
I for one would be very happy with a Sun Studio package in pkgsrc, it
would just make things simpler for me. On the solaris system where I
use pkgsrc I am forced to do unprivileged builds and the sunpro
compiler we have installed is really ancient.
