I'd like to build and install fortune into my home directory on Solaris 10. Can someone recommend a version that's easy to build on Solaris and comes with a good set of fortune files. In reading about fortune, it seems I need to first find and choose my source, and then I have to get some fortune files. I like the version which is bundled with Cygwin. I'm hoping I can find a single tarball which I can simple make/make install.

I found fortune-mod-9708.tar.gz. It doesn't include a configure script, but the Makefile was easy to edit.
