I've heard, not long ago from an MGE user, that opensolaris 10 comes with a
libusb port to ugen, which is the generic USB interface we (MGE) have worked
on with Sun. I can't find it publicly, but it seems included in the
distribution. There are few things still needed to make newhidups compiles
(some unknown types IIRC) and that should be fine. The problem is that the
MGE user do not have much time, nor do I.
But if you have some, step up on upsdev, and we'll check what we can do for
Dev and 2.0.4.
