Commuting between Linux and Solaris?

Often I find myself switching back and forth between systems, for a variety of reasons. While one certainly could use blastwave (or equivalent) to equip the systems identically, there's a couple of things which work just fine with some simple "mapping".

For example, if I've assigned myself the "Primary Administrator" role in my Solaris installation, there's no need for sudo. But it gets tiresome to retrain my fingers sometimes, so

alias sudo="pfexec"

does the trick. Similarly for prstat (alias to top).

Comments:

The first thing I always do is put /usr/sfw/bin in my path so I'll have gmake, convert, gcc, etc.
