Solaris with stats options

Hi Ian

I have mailscanner-mrtg running on solaris 9. However the graphs
for ethernet traffic and memory are not working as there are no
easy way of gathering these statisistics, and I have not had time
to look at this further.

Also I had to slightly alter the option for the number of
mailscanners running in /usr/sbin/mailscanner-mrtg from ps -oe to
ps -ef, as for some reason it gave a blank line for the
mailscanner processes and possibly other processes. I did not have
to do this for the number of mailscanners - a solaris bug!

Feel free to contact me off list.
