OK. I'll start-up the OpenIndiana VM buildbot again. Note that
the issue with running the OpenIndiana VM is largely
that its running on a devel box here at home, and
I'm a bit short on memory and cycles to run the number of VM's
that I'm attempting.

(from private e-mail) I got all the changes that were needed (for me)
to build rpm-5.3.5 on OpenIndiana checked in last month. And
	make check
was likely mostly functional (or I'd remember the flaws. I fergit ...).

The more complex issue is setting up a Bellenix (not an OpenIndiana)
build system.

I'm not sure what tool chain components to use, will adapt to your
packaging as forward progress becomes visible.

For rpm-5.3.6 release this month, I'm using
	autoconf-2.68
	automake-1.11.1
	libtool-2.4
	gettext-0.18.1
as well as (externally installed)
	db-5.1.19
	pcre-8.10
and (internal to RPM)
	beecrypt-4.1.2
	neon-0.29.5
	popt-1.17
There's lua & syck internal to RPM same as always too.
which more or less is "working" on all platforms afaict.
