I sorted through the CVS issues on the OpenIndiana VM I was seeing before.

Reverting from cvs-1.12.x to cvs-1.11.23 (@rpm5.org uses cvs-1.11.22) fixed

OpenIndiana now has a "green waterfall" and all build logs attached at
The tests are still a bit flimsy, yes, but there's likely coverage at ~60%
of all RPM code, and closer to ~80% on the primary build/install/query/erase
paths. I can regenerate LCOV/GCOV logs for rpm-5.3.6 if really interested;

There are a few issues with linker relocations seen while building
popt, but you are almost certain to encounter those same issues,
I had no problem finding other instances of the same problem(s)
