Basically, if we are constrained to use Solaris, we start by installing 
the Blastwave bits so we can pkg-add useful things that Solaris omits.

I don't know ... I think it is a community effort.

We have found this to be the case with huge swaths of FOSS software.  As 
Dan noted, you might give the Linux direction a serious consideration 
... stuff just works there (tla, etc... ).

On that note, I seem to remember that tla is now in maint mode (see 
under Gnu arch).  This might or might not pose a problem for users of it.
