Oops, sorry.  I thought I had everything installed on the system from
building before, and failed to spot that README when I looked for info
-- but you're right.  Is there a good reason it's not shipped with
freeipmi, as it is with ipmitool?  The licence is BSD-ish.  Otherwise,
the README could at least reference*checkout*/ipmitool/ipmitool/src/plugins/bmc/bmc_intf.h
which might be more stable than an OpenSolaris URL.

Anyhow, surely it shouldn't give an internal error on Solaris, in
contrast to the behaviour under GNU/Linux:
  # bmc-info -D SUNBMC
  bmc-info: device not found
I'd expect it to bail out if HAVE_BMC_INTF_H isn't true.

[Normally truss(1) on Solaris, as strace isn't readily available
packaged as far as I know.]
