You have made these statements before, and this time around i am going 
to set some facts straight:

The Companion CD has always been *years* out of date. Not only in 
terms of KDE (which is still KDE 3.1), but also in terms of whatever 
else was available on the CCD.

In terms of what has been available in /usr/sfw, the only 'thing' 
which is more recent than /opt/fsw4sun is OpenSSL (which is at 
version 0.9.7 in /usr/sfw, version 0.9.6 in /opt/fsw4sun).
