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.
