Hi all,

I've got a loan Ultra 40 from Sun for the next 60 days or so.  It's got 
the Sun Studio 11 compiler suite installed.

Talking to a couple of folk on #pkgsrc, I've created a zone, and created 
accounts in the zone for jlam and joerg to work on getting pkgsrc 
working better on Solaris.

Would any other developers like similar accounts?  I should stress that, 
since this is at the end of my ADSL line this is not suitable for use as 
a bulk build box (the distfile downloads would probably push me over the 
ADSL quota quite quickly).  But it is useful to anyone who wants to 
troubleshoot why a particular application isn't building on Solaris, and 
  work on fixes.
