Some of us have plenty of RAM/swap and would _like_ to build and test
java, but it doesn't work. I haven't been able to build mainline java
on sparc-sun-solaris2.7 since early Spring and most recently retested
this past week with no luck.
Is there any interest in getting this platform working again? If so,
I can provide more recent details, if not then well...
