Until now I am just evaluating OpenSolaris as a Linux replacement. 10 Years of fun with a constantly morphing kernel are enough. There are two issues left: One is Context and the other is OCaml. The mainstream software is running just fine.

Not really:

make: ./ctangle: Command not found
make: *** [ctangle.c] Error 127
cp: cannot stat `build/texk/web2c/mpdir/mpost': No such file or directory
Reverted 'VERSIONS'
-e Sorry, there have been some failures:
  - build of xetex on sunos-intel
  - build of luatex on sunos-intel
  - build of metapost on sunos-intel
-n No svn commit! Please press enter to continue!

Yes, this program was compiled and I can run it (missing texmf.cnf aside).

Those two files don't exist. There are a bunch of source files in this web2c directories but not the searched executables.

I will try to figure out in what directory gmake is getting the "command not found" error and place a copy of ctangle there.
