Thanks for all replies!

The information about the 'software group'/distribution installed on a sun
can be found in /var/sadm/system/admin/CLUSTER file.

# cat /var/sadm/system/admin/CLUSTER

# grep METACLUSTER /var/sadm/system/admin/.clustertoc

gives the possible 'distribution versions'.

For the header files:

I installed package SUNWhea for the C header files in /usr/include.

About fetchmail: gave me the hint that there is a precompiled "package" of
fetchmail (Version 3.9.5) for Solaris 2.5.1 on

Thanks to:
