That's good :-)

Yes, the 0.7.0 does have changes for Solaris.  They were all generic
porting issues between *nix systems.  Solaris uses a different number of
arguments to gethostbyname_r, the argp parsing library didn't exist on
solaris, a whole bunch of strXXX() functions weren't on solaris, various
Makefile tweaks for portability, etc.

The sunbmc driver has not been tested at all in FreeIPMI 0.7.0.  So if
you have a system with that driver, it'd be good to see if FreeIPMI
0.7.0 implements things correctly.

Thanks,
Al
