Yeah, it isn't standard. I built hevea 1.07 from source and installed
it on my RedHat 7.1 machine that I use for packaging.

This is a bug. The problem is that I changed the name of platform
SunOS to Solaris, which breaks the output of upgrade-basis. I'll
think about a fix.

We're up to using 110.44 these days, and you must use that. It's way
too hard to support multiple versions.
