OK, I'll give it a shot.

Call me stupid, but I can't tell from the Blastwave site (a) whether their
stuff is for SPARC or X86, (b) what version of Solaris it's for, and (c) where
the "stable" packages are.

Is pkg-get smart enough to figure all that out for me?

I'm still somewhat surprised that there's no ipfilter package available
