          Looking round the OTN for solaris article I noticed the following page on IPS Packaging:

          http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/server-storage/solaris11/technologies/ips-323421.html

          I noticed the following 'how-to' guide entitled: How to Create and Publish Packages to an IPS Repository on Oracle Solaris 11

          http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/articles/servers-storage-admin/o11-097-create-pkg-ips-524496.html

          Which covering the following fours steps:

          Building the source code.
          Creating a manifest for your IPS package
          Setting up an IPS repository
          Publishing the package to the repository.
