Yes, I will.

FWIW, illumos based distributions are very popular and
wide-spread (OmniOS, OpenIndiana, SmartOS, Tribblix, …), so I guess
it would be a pity to not have unit working.

Moreover, if it will run on SmartOS, for example, it could be included in pkgsrc,
as we test all packages on SmartOS, NetBSD, Linux, Darwin.

If you could give me some pointer how to debug this properly, I can do it. Or
I can provide an access to SmartOS zone where someone else could do it.
