If you want to be wired up for CVS write access @rpm5.org, send
an ssh pubkey to <jbj@rpm5.org>.

Otherwise just drop patches on <rpm-devel@rpm5.org> and
I'll try to get them integrated.

There should not be too much needed to build on OpenIndiana.

Getting attached to some -lelf is likely the most critical
path issue. I'd recommend using elfutils, but I can/will dig
out the same functionality using the OpenIndiana -lelf along
the way.

The -lelf issue is largely a few useful methods that are
extensions in elfutils, bit not present in the Sun derived ELF

Otherwise its just ELF == ELF and RPM uses the "standard"
gelf* API.
