The packages in Solaris appear to be a strict subset of those in 
FreeBSD, missing aspell gdbint gmp graph gtk2 iconvenc librsvg libxml 
pxlib sdl users.

Is this best discussed here, in one of the FPC lists, or as a bug report 
(and in that case against which project)?

That was slightly tongue in cheek. I've got limited space in my workroom 
(plus limited UPS capacity etc.) and I'd find it far more difficult 
justifying to management putting time into BSD than into Solaris.
