Thanks to Richard, Anthony and John. who all pointed me in the direction of

I used this to convert to a file based package. I then replaced the binaries
and modified the pkgmap file to update the size and checksum info for the
altered files, changed the ARCH info in pkginfo and reconverted to the stream

Happy trails.

Subject: packaging question


I've got an application package created by a predecessor at my current site.
The package is built for SPARC in stream format. I want to convert it for
install onto x86. In essence all I need to do is change the architecture
dependency and replace one binary.

I must confess I've never built a package before and in this instance there's
more to the package than just being a collection of files. It appears to
a whole load of system specific scripts on the fly.

I've tried just hacking the package and replacing all instances of "sparc"
with "i86pc" but it's not having it.

Can anyone assist?
