I would just use a manual mapping table for the PKGNAME and do something
adhoc for those. Same for PKGNAME with invalid characters. As I wanted
to point out, the list is small enough that it shouldn't create a large
maintainance hassle.

Otherwise: improvements for gensolpkg are much appreciated by Solaris
users, though I don't fall into that category :)
