I must retract the above statement.  The current version builds these
libs for me now, so I see the PLIST problem without your proposed
 SunOS 5.10 Generic_144488-06 sun4u sparc SUNW,Sun-Fire-V440 Solaris
 pkgsrc gcc 4.4.4

Regarding the fix, I think it would be better to remove PLIST.Darwin &
PLIST.DragonFly & PLIST.Linux and replace them with PLIST.long (or
some other name)
and then in the Makefile set PLIST_SRC+= PLIST and conditionally set
PLIST_SRC+= PLIST.long, since each of the OS specific PLIST files
contain the same list of files.
This way if it turns out the build of those libs if dependent upon
more than just the OS (the compiler for instance) the more complex
logic can be added to the Makefile.
