I've installed mlton for sol8 into my home directory on a sol10
machine. This worked for "Hello World!" but needed a small patch:

--- mlton.orig  2006-10-27 13:57:43.000000000 +0200
+++ mlton       2006-10-27 13:58:35.000000000 +0200

 set -e

 dir=`dirname $0`
 eval `$lib/platform`
 case "$HOST_OS" in

Now I'm to run the regression tests to see what's wrong.
