Things what I do after a fresh install of Solaris 10 on my home Blade 100/Ultra 10's
Status of this document: reminder to myself, the information is from several sources on the net.
May be this information is absoulutely wrong, may be not. Better do not read it at all.

CFLAGS="-I/usr/local/include -I/opt/csw/include/ -I/usr/sfw/include/"
# Also mind -D__EXTENSIONS__ and other stuff
LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/lib -L/opt/csw/lib -L/usr/sfw/lib"
CPP="gcc -E "
export XGETTEXT MSGMERGE MSGFMT GREP TAIL CFLAGS LDFLAGS
export CC CXX CPP
tune it, and use as the script for compiling stuff.
Gather things to PKG_CONFIG_PATH to became smth like that (with some
extra usefull stuff) - into /home/user/.bash_profile:
To use your's HPUX and AIX machines (or, if you are lucky, SGI even) with Solaris's X11 as X terminal

There are no such services on Linux or OpenBSD, so you can turn them off ;-)) (but better
read what you are doing; anyway, I hever had time for that)
#svcadm disable management/ocm (that's health collector) #svcadm disable svc:/system/webconsole:console (that web console; you may need it) #svcadm disable svc:/application/management/wbem (I'll find out what's that, really, one day)
