Talk to the opencsw.org guys, they have both Solaris 9 and 10 for x86
and sparc.  I think they also have Solaris 8, but I don't think we need
to care about that platform.  And further, I don't think Solaris support
is something we should spend a lot of time on if it takes away time to
work on other improvements that benefits GNU platforms.
