Yeah there are a few things I want to verify on this, looks like they have a
couple of prereqs and possibly some path hell going on. I'll look into next
week sometime hopefully. I grabbed a couple of builds to see what there is
to see. Solaris people say LD_LIBRARY_PATH is not the way to go and so far I
have never needed to use it, so hopefully it can be made to work some other
way. If it is needed then they should definitely heed your warning and bake
in the search path to a "standard" location like /usr/sfw or /opt/sfw
etc. If they depend on /opt/csw-anything then they may as well contribute
the build back to csw since only people who use the opencsw infrastructure
are going to be able to use it.
