OK, thanks. Is it possible to get Spark to build using an existing 
Hadoop build tree, or does Spark insist on building its own Hadoop? The 
instructions at seem to 
suggest that it always builds its own Hadoop version.

I may also have to fiddle with Hadoop to get it to build on Solaris if 
the instructions at

are still relevant.

Yes, it works as-is but I have a need for speed :-)
