Please place an updated README.Solaris in wip/bootstrap.

pkgsrc maps systems to a mk/platform/${platform}.mk so if Solaris and
illumos use the same platform/ file, they are the same platform,
by definition, and then there are within-platform differences
accomodated there.  However, "egrep -R llumos ." in mk does not match
any code.

I lean to thinking that our README.${platform}
should exactly mirror that naming and if not it's a bug.  Currently this
is platform/ and bootstrap/README.Solaris

If you want to propose a split into platform/Solaris and
platform/Ilumos, that's a big change and would need rationale on
tech-pkg.  But I am unaware of a problem that it would solve.

Thanks.  Please review what I just put in README.Minix3 and if it's not
right, please put a fixed version in wip/bootstrap.
