 1. Concerning PKGREVISION... reset to blank by removing it?
 2. For /usr/sfw... if "gas" is to be used, it appears (at least since
 gcc 4x) that a recent binutils version should be used as is done in the 
 "else" conditional
 just afterwards in the current Makefile.
 3. For /usr/ccs ... extracted from

 Perhaps this change could be conditioned upon *-solaris2.11 or 
 Any particular suggestion? Myself, not really sure it is necessary.
 Another possibility would be to use allow the user stipulate a builtin 
 assembler preference
 in mk.conf (perhaps the same for the link editor) and make the Makefile 
 once and for all agnostic...
