Build Sun packages actually doesn't have to be that hard. I successfully 
used the PKG-Tools (http://www.bpfh.net/computing/software/pkg-tools/) to 
build and packaged CUPS 1.1.18, Qt 3.1.2, kdelibs 3.1.1, kdebase 3.1.1 
and Umbrello 1.1.1 on Solaris 9 (Release 9/02, without Xrender) without a 
problem. Workin and everything ;)

If anyone's interested and willing to test, scream.
