I have no idea who Martin Bochnig is. In one of the OI meetings I asked how
many people were looking at SPARC and the impression was that it was only
Meths (Jon) and myself afaik.

I've already done an Illumos build mirroring x86, same as what is in
oi_148a. I've stopped, because I don't want to end up spending a huge amount
of time producing something that won't be used.

That's what I was suggesting in my first post. Concentrate on server

Thanks for the feedback.
