Well, since not all Solaris are created equal, and I haven't seen
any reference to pkgsrc on Solaris 11 recently, I think it's worth
noticing that pkgsrc-2022Q1 bootstraps and works perfectly on Solaris
11.4 using SunStudio 12.6 as compiler. 

I think Illumos and Solaris have diverged enough to be considered
different platforms. Even within the illumos ecosystem there are
non-negligible differences between distributions.

I have a working pkgsrc-2021Q4 tree on Minix 3.4.0rc6 (latest and
possibly last developer preview). Using the `pkgin_sets' script to
install the toolchain (clang 3.6),  and the developer tools first is a
requirement. From then, one can do `bmake update' to get the most recent
version of pkgtools/pkg_install and so on. I successfully built several
packages which weren't available in the official repo with little to no

Best Regards.
