Bug#504590: (forw) Bug#504590: clock-setup: OpenSolaris uses local time by default

I think that's correct.

I suppose that's only a shortcut (should be x86 instead of IA32, IMO,
but no big deal :-) ).
On Solaris SPARC, since version 7, both sparc (32 bit) and sparcv9 (64
bit) arch are supported.
On Solaris x86, since version 10, and including OpenSolaris, both i386
and amd64 arch are supported.
So from an installer point of view, on a given family of architecture,
there's no possibility to differentiate between 32/64.
