I did this original setup. If you want to produce new packages, I'd be
more than happy to update the site.

There was recently (within the past few days) patches sent to the glibc
list to make glibc compile on Solaris. IMO, once that is done, the rest
of the system becomes pretty easy to do. I'm not particularly interested

UFS support, and my time is better spent on Linux (but others may have
their own agenda :)
