Features and usage of the Mac OS X version are summarized on the homepage.
This is an experimental Solaris fork of Homebrew.
Quick Install to /usr/local
ruby -e "$(curl -fsSL https://raw.github.com/gist/1021141/)"
Dude! Just give me a one-liner!
Okay then, but please note this installs Homebrew as root and we recommend against that.
curl -LsSf http://github.com/rmyers/homebrew/tarball/master | sudo /usr/bin/tar xvz -C/usr/local --strip 1
But what packages are available?
Before installing you can browse the Solaris Formula folder on GitHub.
After installing, you can use
brew search to find packages or
to browse packages off of a local web server.
All the formula in the Solaris folder are know to work, and when you attempt to install it will also check in the Formula folder and give you a warning when you are installing. If it works let me know so I can add it to the known good packages.
The wiki is your friend.

I'm Robert Myers and I'm a splendid chap as well. My main language of choice is Python, so forgive me if some things in this fork are wonky.
