I’ve been installing several Perl modules from CPAN on a Solaris box. I’ve been carefully constructing SysV Packages for each one. Since the repitition has been painful, I finally paid attention to my own advice to never do anything twice and created cpan-to-pkg.
It contains a couple of simple implementations of SYSV programs (pkgproto and pkgmk) and hopefully, I’ll be able to replace more bits and pieces as time goes on. However, these two pieces will fit nicely in the SYSV conversion work I did for alien last year.
