2. Personally I'll probably starting working on some of related
issues because I'd like to use pkgsrc on OmniOS and bootstrapping is
as obnoxious there as it was for OpenIndiana (e.g. gcc 4.6 has to be
installed from another source first among other issues).

It should be enough to run:

   $ pkg install gcc46 header linker lint object-file header-math

to install everything required to bootstrap on OmniOS, otherwise you
are welcome to simply use my existing bootstrap kit and 9,800 binary
packages for illumos:

which will have the added benefit of letting you experience pkgin ;)

Thanks, Jonathan, very helpful.
I've been wondering why gnat-aux/gcc-aux SunOS bootstrap hasn't been working as it was statically compiled on OpenIndiana, so I need to get a system running to check it out myself. I want to get those Ada packages fixed on SunOS, especially since I will probably start adding more soon.
