 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.
