build ibus-1.1.0 input method stack on opensolaris

First of all, install CBE, and setup your build env, you could refer to Matt Keenan's Blog. You also need to install the following depended packages,

$ pfexec pkg install SUNWPython26 SUNWgnome-python26-libs SUNWdbus-python26 SUNWpython26-xdg

Checkout the inputmethod repo, and link /usr/bin/python2.6 to /usr/bin/python,

$ inputmethod/spec/ ibus*.spec

Then, export GTK_IM_MODULE=ibus and XMODIFIERS=@im=ibus in $HOME/.profile, re-login. After that, you would see an [i] icon in the tray-area, click the "preferences" from the popup menu (right-button click), and add the input methods you want to use in "Input Methods" tab.

Please NOTE, there are still some unfinished tasks, like the 64bits gtk_imm, SUNW_PKG/SUNW_LOC etc,  that I will address by the end of this week. And since ibus-chewing requires a higher version of libchewing, which breaks the API/ABI compatibilities of iiimf-zhTW-twle-chewing, I did not include ibus-chewing so far.
