Consider this a tracking bug in adding support for the illumos (sunos is secondary target) platform
Needed: kqueue/event replacement (port-sunos.c) -- http://developers.sun.com/solaris/articles/event_completion.html
I'm probably not going to have the time to implement this myself,
but if someone contributes a patch I'll consider merging it. There's
still an ongoing maintenance burden, and it'll be difficult for me to
routinely test beanstalkd code on illumos, but the amount of code
that's truly platform-specific is pretty small and rarely needs to
change, so it shouldn't be too risky.
Feel free to reopen this if there's more interest and someone wants
to submit a patch.
