Thank you very much for that hint on the current documentation.

I cannot yet tell about the joyent setup, which I will test in the
next few days .

When running the mksandbox scripts inside docker containers, as I
eventually did, I ran into some interesting issues:

I run docker on Ubuntu 16.10 using ZFS, which I am thouroughly
addicted to. Then, when mounting pkgsrc as a volume into docker
containers, the pkgsrc directory _must_ reside on a separate ZFS
dataset for mksandbox to properly mount pkgsrc into the sandbox. The
same holds for any other volume mounts into docker, e.g. for

Secondly, with Fedora it was actually easier to compile, because some
packages, e.g. apache24, require a current openssl, which is provided
from the fedora:25 upstream, but not on CentOS.

Debian runs into some cyclic dependiencies which I have not yet
investigated (ENOTIME).

Thank you all for your help. Cheers!
