now I could build cvsnt on OpenSolaris (x86) and got it running.

But there is necessary to patch it. The vanilla version uses the system 
getopt function which is not compatible with the GNU getopt. Therefore cvsnt 
can't parse the options correctly. After forcing the use of the cvsnt 
version of getopt it works (I hope... only a few tests till now).

cvsnt works in principle but it does not cooperate with the 
inetd of OpenSolaris. And I could not build newer versions because a lot of 
linker errors.

If someone is interested in using of cvsnt on OpenSolaris and if he need 
help he can contact me.

Best regards,
Tilo Riemer
