How to build oracle solaris 11, OR oracle solaris express 11 from source ?

I am new to Solaris, and would like to go through the exercise of building the operating system from the source files.

I have not as yet installed either oracle solaris 11 binary or oracle solaris express 11 binary.

I have searched web for suitable "how to" information, but only found some guides specifically for opensolaris.

I noted on the source code download area for oracle solaris 11 and express 11 that the source code available for download is the open source portions. Am afraid that implies that since the proprietry sections are missing a build is not possible.

Any pointers or guidance or links welcome on this.

Thanks, Seán
