For those people using pkgsrc on Solaris I was just wondering what you
currently do (if anything) about libbz2.so?
Solaris (at least from Solaris 9) has a /usr/include/bzlib.h so
bzip2/builtin.mk thinks its built in and if you're building 32bit thats fine
as there is also a perfectly fine /usr/lib/libbz2.so.
However if you are building 64bit as far as I can see the following situation
Solaris 9 sparc - you need the SUNWbzipx package (not normally installed?)
Solaris 10 sparc - Its in SUNWbzip so all is fine
Solaris 10 i386 - doesn't exist at all.
Am I correct? What do you do about it?
Why is there a small set of libraries that Solaris has 32bit but not 64bit
versions of? libbz2, libXau and libXdmcp are the ones I've found so far.
