I totally agree. But more often than not when I report such a bug,
nothing happens. I don't have enough expertise to dig into the make
process or cwrapper to fix it myself, and those who do seem to look away
as soon one of my tickets is labeled "Solaris issue".
So my next best solution would be a mechanism, that would allow me to
keep the build process as automated as possible, without as little
manual intervention as necessary. BTW: Turning off cwrappers in mk.conf
is no longer an option, as there are packages that do no longer compile
without cwrappers on Solaris. I think this is also a bug (at least as
long as cwrappers is optional), but the treatment of such PRs is the
same as above.
