That's quite understandable.  I used SunOS 4 heavily, but
it's now just a museum piece, and it doesn't appear to be
worth your time or ours to maintain GNU utilities on it.
(If the best way to run an environment is on an emulator,
that's a good sign the environment is no longer real....)

In contrast, Solaris 8 is still in production in a few
real-world places.  I have access to some Solaris 8
hosts that are still in (real) use here at UCLA, and
Sunfreeware.com still regularly issues packages built
for Solaris 8 and up.  So Solaris 8 still makes the
cut, if only barely.
