Comment 1 Michael Stahl (allotropia) 2016-05-26 12:46:50 UTC
there is a GNUTAR invocation in sysui/CustomTarget_solaris.mk - perhaps that is causing the trouble, some wrong variable expansion there?
Comment 2 Michael Stahl (allotropia) 2016-05-26 12:53:36 UTC
ah that broke in the gbuild conversion, see commit 01344a8ca57636ac87108c22f777a02fe6d963d5
file sysui/desktop/solaris/makefile.mk
had this line

@$(GNUTAR) -cf - -C $(PKGDIR) $(@:b:b:s/-/ /:1:s/.//)$(PRODUCTVERSIONSHORT)-desktop-int | gzip > $@
Comment 3 Richard PALO 2016-05-26 13:01:44 UTC
Hmm, I have no idea what this is supposed to be now...

but what it is now certainly looks odd:
$(GNUTAR) -cf - -C $(solaris_WORKDIR) $*$(LIBO_MAJOR) -desktop-int | gzip > $@
Comment 4 Richard PALO 2016-05-30 09:37:58 UTC

Comment 5 Richard PALO 2016-05-30 10:21:29 UTC
So looking at bit at the contents of this, I'm not so sure it is worth keeping
around as it is probably of limited use given the evolution since S10 of the SunOS 

For example, on SunOS 5.11(illumos), the 'depend' file is meaningless:
P SUNWcar Core Architecture, (Root)
P SUNWkvm Core Architecture, (Kvm)
P SUNWcsr Core Solaris, (Root)
P SUNWcsu Core Solaris, (Usr)
P SUNWcsd Core Solaris Devices
P SUNWcsl Core Solaris, (Shared Libs)
P SUNWloc System Localization

>$ pkg list -af SUNWcar SUNWkvm SUNWcsr SUNWcsd SUNCcsl SUNWloc | sort -u
>pkg list: aucun package correspondant à 'SUNWcsr, SUNCcsl n'existe
>NAME (PUBLISHER)                                  VERSION                    IFO
>SUNWcar                                           0.5.11-0.133               --r
>SUNWcsd                                           0.5.11-0.151019            i--
>SUNWkvm                                           0.5.11-0.133               --r
>SUNWloc                                           0.5.11-0.133               --r

distributions can package as need be, for example I'm using pkgsrc which packages
without using the either of the legacy SunOS package manager.
Comment 6 Xisco Faulí 2016-09-12 12:22:16 UTC
Adding keyword 'bibisectRequest'.
Comment 7 Michael Stahl (allotropia) 2016-09-12 12:47:25 UTC
removing "bibisectRequest", unlikely to help for a Solaris build issue :)
Comment 8 Xisco Faulí 2016-09-12 21:17:44 UTC
Then adding keyword 'notBibisectable'. Sorry for the noise...
Comment 9 Xisco Faulí 2017-09-29 08:51:36 UTC Comment hidden (obsolete, spam)

okay i've pushed the patch from comment #4 now, mainly so that bugzilla stops sending me mails about this :)
