I can spend some time trying to get NUT working on Solaris 10 for at
least 3 or 4 weeks.
To get the ball rolling, I tried to get usb to build automatically on
Solaris 10 using Marty's guide. This works. But I will admit I am a
novice when it comes to autoconf. I am using the source checked out
from subversion yesterday.

In configure.in added the following:
dnl Solaris 10
dnl Needs the additional librt
dnl Needs to find runtime libraries
case $target_os in
echo Solaris 10 specific configuration for usb driver
echo updating LIBUSB_LIBS $LIBUSB_LIBS
In drivers/Makefile.in, make a small change to LIBOBJ:
LIBOBJ = $(LIBDEP) @NETLIBS@ @SERLIBS@
LIBOBJ = $(LIBDEP) @NETLIBS@ @SERLIBS@ @LIBS@

The drivers seemed to compile ok without adding these targets after
making the changes to the autoconf system.
