I know, that citation was from my post ;-)

I made the necessary changes to configure-detection:
Cachefs has been dropped from Solaris 11, so there is no substitute.
For the vmmeter.h I don't know what the correct substitute for Solaris 11 is.

Feel free to try the updated version (3.5.2 is not official yet!) at

After some testing I will release it on the SourceForge download area
and also as OpenCSW package as always.

Best regards
