Solaris Packages (pkgadd format) for MySQL!

In going to grab MySQL 5.0.17 today I noticed that the MySQL folks are now providing the Solaris binaries in Solaris packaging (pkgadd) format. That is so cool, now I don't have to go to the trouble of packaging it myself. I was planning to get started on a plan to move our dev environment up to 5.0 next week. Now rather than spending the day getting the build script up to speed I can do something else. I used to compile MySQL myself, but I just can't see the justification anymore, especially now that the pkgadd packages are available.

It hasn't been that long since I last came and grabbed MySQL, although that was for OS X so I might have missed the availability of Solaris packages.

Now, what will I do with my day?
