Just finished of the upgrade of my SPARC machine (what better way to 
spend your time on a Christams Eve? :-) ). Great stuff, as usual!

I appreciate the work you did to simplify installation in a foreign 
locale. Last couple of times I had to investigate myself and edit a 
couple of files to be able to log in using something other than en_US. 
Now it was much easier, using your description and the provided program 
and icon (though, of course; having done this before on this box might 
have helped...).

Also installed a couple of language packs. And here I have some remarks:

- runconfigure bailed out first complaining about an undefined 
WORKSHOP_ROOT variable. I guess this was used for your compiler root? I 
just did likewise, and it went through. Probably I could just have 
removed it as well.

- The provided adapted configure script I never got the hang of (always
complained about missing input files). I ended up just merging in the
path diffs ("/opt/fsw4sun") into the distribution (original) configure
file. Then it went OK. Probably missed some stuff, but seems fine for my

So again: Great packages, appreciate you doing this! Hope you have time 
at some point to make packages for 3.5 as well.

Now on to upgrade my Sun provided Intel laptop...

	NOW is the only thing that is real
