running filemerge on opensolaris

to continue with the theme of my last post, i recently discovered teamware filemerge doesn't run on opensolaris because of missing X and tool talk components. at first you might might think this is a non-issue because OS/Net has moved away from teamware to hg. but aside from having to deal with older non-hg workspaces, i've discovered that hgsetup(1) (a onbld utility that configures hg for working with OS/Net sources) configures hg to use teamware's filemerge for resolving merge conflicts. (luckily the hg merge command fails gracefully when filemerge fails to run.) a little digging revealed that the problem can be solved by installing the following packages:
    SUNWdtcor SUNWdtdmr SUNWtltk SUNWxwrtl SUNWmfrun
once again, if you have acces to SWAN, you can run the following commands to fix the problem:
    plat=x; [ `uname -p` = sparc ] && plat=s
    ver=`uname -v | sed 's:.\*_::'`
    dir=/net/netinstall.eng/export/nv/$plat/$ver/Solaris_11/Product
    pkgadd -d $dir SUNWdtcor SUNWdtdmr SUNWtltk SUNWxwrtl SUNWmfrun
