one problem of integrating patches is that you need to test them if the 
trunk builds are still OK or if some adjustments are necessary. However, 
AFAIK no developer has a Solaris machine under the desk and therefore 
it's not a good idea to commit fixes when you don't know what the 
results are. ;-)

That's also the reason why the build environment still uses Sun Studio 
and nothing else - instead or additional.

But when you can help us here with builds that would be great.
