Yes, indeed,
I've look into nexenta,... it seems to be a good thing ;).

They patched dpkg
I found in this patch a lot of modifications I made.

By the way, I've less modifications since I prefered to customize
configure option whereas changing source files (either in debian/ either
in sources).

My configure options are :

../dpkg-1.14.6_mb/configure --prefix=$DPKG_ROOT --without-gnu-ld
--disable-linker-optimisations --disable-nls --disable-rpath
--without-dselect --without-start-stop-daemon --with-libiconv-prefix=
$GNU_ROOT --with-libintl-prefix=$GNU_ROOT CC=gcc CPPFLAGS="-I
$DPKG_ROOT/ssl/include -I$DPKG_ROOT/include" CFLAGS="-g -m32"

I've heard of some modification to come in dpkg regarding the
architectures. What are they? Could this be a feature like "I can
compile dpkg on my *NIX machine by specifing --host=*NIX" ???

Compiling dpkg on Solaris was like creating the first chicken. Maybe if
we could create a debbootstrap for Solaris it would be the first egg ...

Since I'm new to this discussion list, this may have been discussed in
the past, isn't it ?
