Looks great. And it is very different from what the pkgsrc guide 
mentions about Solaris.

A fix for the problem in chapter 06 is appended. Please try it.

Another problem I have stumbled upon is that GCC comes with <stdbool.h>, 
but SunPro does not. This can lead to situations where all packages that 
depend on a certain library have to be compiled with GCC just because 
that library assumes that <stdbool.h> exists. I don't know yet how to 
work around that.
