if there are, i'm interested too... i can cohoperate with its maintainance
too... BTW i'm using Johannes' 2.1rc on an ultra5 at home and it works fine,
just adapt it to udev and get some new ports... I will probably try to install
it on some Enterprise 450 and maybe on some more recent machines...
I plan to try a toolchain build soon with recent ports, that's why i want to
install it at work (because i see my ultra5 only once every two week-ends).

yes, i'd love that too, but consider that in many enterprise contexts you
can't do without java (i mean sun java with sun classpath or compatible), and
there is none for linux/sparc (think that linux/ppc is greatly penalized by
this either), so solaris is the only choice too often :(
