First I would like to thank you for making building the OpenSSH package
so easy on Solaris 8. I wish it was so easy with all open source

and additionally from SunFreeware:

$ pkginfo|grep -v SUNW

application SMCmake        make
application SMCnmap        namp
application SMCosslc       openssl
application SMCsudo        sudo

My path during the build was:

$ echo $PATH

and with no special LD_LIBRARY_PATH or LD_RUN_PATH.

Now, the only problem I had was, that the scripts does a 

## Extract common info requires for the 'info' part of the package.
VERSION=`tail -1 ../../version.h | sed -e 's/.*_\([0-9]\)/\1/g' | sed

but since there is a blank line at the end of version.h the variable
VERSION is empty and the package will not build! I changed this to

## Extract common info requires for the 'info' part of the package.
VERSION=`tail -1 ../../version.h | head -1 | sed -e 's/.*_\([0-9]\)/\1/g' | sed

and things went smooth.

You should probably fix this or write a note about it (if you haven't
already - though I didn't see it).

Again, thanks for a (otherwise) great job done.
