Yes, I understand that the OI team is small.

Sure no problem, feel free to post if you encounter any issue :)

We provide a metapackage named "build-essential" which should cover most
You can inspect the list of component provided by this metapackage at
Another hint is to look at package dependencies directly, liste in
When components are built from oi-userland, calling "gmake env-prep" within
a component directory will install the listed dependencies.
In any case if you deal with multimedia packages you need to add the
# pkg set-publisher -O http://pkg.openindiana.org/hipster-encumbered/
You need the correct credentials to do so.
Instead of running as root, I prefer to add the "Software Installation"
profile to my user:
usermod -P "Software Installation" username
After this, you can perform action with pkg ad beadm just with pfexec (like
you would do with sudo).
