#!/usr/bin/perl -w
use strict;
open(IN,"showrev -p |");
while(<IN>) {
  if ( $_ =~ /^Patch: (\d+)\-(\d+)/ ) {
    print "=solaris_patchrev_$1=$2\n";

...seems simple enough?

...but do you know what patches you care about in advance?  The set
of classes defined by the (any) module needs to be explictly defined
with addinstallable = ( )
