Doing a build on a newly installed zone to determine the correct dependencies for the [[How To Build illumos]] page, I was surprised to discover that usr/src/cmd/svr4pkg/pkgremove/wsreg_pkgrm.h still exists.
It depends on wsreg.h from pkg:/system/management/product-registry in the closed admin consolidation.

pkg:/developer/opensolaris/osnet should cover all the dependencies you need. If it does not, please file additional bugs calling out hwat should be in there but is not.

For this specific header, yeah, this header comes from admin, though source is available from another consolidation (it lived in caiman, briefly, I think).

Given it briefly lived an open life, some have suggested we just add the header. I'm convinced this is wrong, if the header is prodreg related, as the package suggests, we should just remove the need for it. prodreg is basically doomed.

we don't need to support the wsreg stuff in illumos, its a Sun-only thing.
