[Xymon] Looking for Xymon clients for Solaris

I compiled several versions on Solaris, there is a few trick that you need to know.
For the server compilation you need a bunch of SUN freeware packages, I just use the same host for a client package, probably less deps for client only.
On the client itself you need some of these installed as well.
Same procedure for x86.
If you use blastwave packages it is a bit different....

binutils (SMCbinut)
    db (SMCdb47)
    freetype (SMCftype)
    gcc (SMCgcc)
    libart_lgpl (SMClibart)
    libpng (SMClibpng)
    libtool (SMClibt)
    libiconv (SMCliconv)
    libintl (SMClintl)
    make (SMCmake)
    openldap (SMColdap)
    openssl (SMCossl)
    pcre (SMCpcre)
    rrdtool (SMCrrdt)
    sasl (SMCsasl)
    zlib (SMCzlib)

setup compiling env.
groupadd -g 1001 xymon
useradd -u 62001 -g 1001 -d /usr/local/xymon -m -s /usr/bin/bash -c "Xymon Owner" xymon
This is for rrdtool, some strange dep, maybe not necessary for client as it doesn't need rrdtool. ( this will force use of gnu ld)
mv /usr/ccs/bin/ld /usr/ccs/bin/ld.orig
export PATH=/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/sbin
crle -u -l /usr/local/lib
crle -u -l /usr/local/rrdtool-1.2.19/lib
umask 022

cd /var/tmp
cp <from somewhere> /var/tmp
gunzip xymon-4.3.10.tar.gz
tar xf xymon-4.3.10.tar
cd xymon-4.3.10
which make
which ld
make install         (this step as root)

Subject: [Xymon] Looking for Xymon clients for Solaris

I am looking to now tackle the Solaris systems, does anyone have either a HowTo or a compiled Solaris client for Sparc and x86?
I am running 4.3.0-0.beta2 Xymon server and have the compiled client running on multiple CentOS systems.
The Xymon server is on a CentOS server.

Is there a good tutorial/HowTo that shows how to just compile a client or do you take the entire portion of the source tree and do a 'make' and 'make install', etc. ?

I do not want to download the entire Xymon system and compile it unless I have to.
A little guidance would be greatly appreciated :)

                Solaris 10 (Sparc, X86)
                Solaris 9 (Sparc)
                Solaris 8 (Sparc)
