Nothing at all, my pleasure. :-)

I don't see them in 4.5.2 source tgz.

I don't know Solaris packages that much. I think there must be a way. 
But here is one point of concern - as far as I had seen, after importing 
the manifest to the SMF the service is immediately started. I do not 
know if it's always like that or maybe it can be specified in the 
manifest. The problem is that somebody may want to change e.g. the 
hostname in collectd.conf before any data is dispatched via network plugin.
