However since it has a lot of fixed information (unlike the Solaris'
package) you are going to have to be willing to maintain it or convert
it to a pure dynamic system. That was the main reason why the Solaris
buildpkg.sh was rewritten to ensure that I did not have to muck with it
very offen. =)
However, if you are willing to ensure it is up-to-date on future releases
I'd be happy to include it.

It requires no special tools and all code was either written by me or derived from the openssh distribution itself. It is made available under the same terms as buildpkg.sh (ie public domain).
