I only listed out the specifics one's for a reason.  Others versions of 
those libraries fail to compile for some reason or another or take more 
work than an inexperienced person should have to go through to get it to 
compile.  For the ones that aren't listed, the current version compiles 
with no problems.

Might not be a dependencies, but again, compiling it up is a non-issue.

What's posted takes into consideration using what's already available in 
Solaris.  The next version will not.
