pkgtools/gensolpkg - The NetBSD Packages Collection

Utility to generate a Solaris package

This is a small utility to translate from NetBSD-derived pkgsrc
packages into Solaris packages.  I wrote this as an aid to
understanding Solaris packages, and to provide some Solaris packages
which can be used in jumpstart, and manipulated with the Solaris
package manipulation tools, but still have the benefit of the original
package being maintained by a number of people who know what they're
doing, and put a lot of time into keeping abreast of latest versions
and bug fix releases.
