Several things:


1) Part 3 describes what you need to do to make the port -- it was published on the 9th at:


http://www.oreillynet.com/pub/a/javascript/2002/08/08/coldfusion_three.html


2) You can't use the shell script provided by MacroMedia for several reasons:


You need to use the OS X JVM/JRE instead of the one installed.


OS X will not run several non-MacOS C++ programs


You must set environment variables based on OS X rather than Solaris


You must put certain files (e.g. jdbc drivers) where OS X Java can find them


3) I did not try the port with the Solaris version of CFMX so I don't know if that will port, at all.


What is most troubling is that you are setting it up on a Server box!


Are you planning to use the port as a production server?


If so, you will be disappointed:


The Trial version reverts to a Developer version in 30 days.


The Developer version supports localhost and one external IP address


The port will only work with the Macromedia-supplied standalone web server


The standalone web server is not robust enough to support a production environment.


Apache, or any other web requires another non-MacOS C++ program (not available).


The port is not supported by MacroMedia
