I assume this stands for "if not defined, set CC to."?

Does this work for GNUMkaefiles, too?

If so, I can incorporate this patch to my tree. (Bottom-line: please
push upstream any patches that are worth including upstream, for the
benefit of all)

Possibly the dumbest questions ever, but:

1) Could you provide a two-liner (or URL) regarding how users of such
platforms could make use of pkgsrc?

2) What's the trick for making ipv6toolkit compile on Solaris? -- I
recall being told that we'd need lots of small changes for the toolkit
to even compile on Solaris (even some typedefs). Additionally, there are
low level bits that would need more work on other platforms. -- eg.
access to the routing table. We currently support Linux and *BSD via
netlink and routing sockets... but I bet we might need something else
for solaris... For cygwin, there are some header files that are not even
included in their release (just started looking at cygwin a few days ago..).
