Debian GNU userland for SunOS

>From the responses I've received, I guess I should be more precise in 
what I'd like to do:

(Cross-?)Compile GNU programs for SunOS, and release them.  No kernel, no 
Sun binaries, &c.  It should contain exactly everything that's released 
with Debian Linux or Hurd, except the kernel, and kernel loader.

The installation procedure should partition disks or at least wipe them, 
preserving whatever kernel and boot-necessary stuff is already there, and
removing everything that's userland-related.  It then installs a FHS-
compliant, GNU system.

It's not an operating system, exactly, so calling it Debian GNU/SunOS is
misleading, so that will have to be addressed.  Ideas?  Flames?

BTW, in The Debian Free Software Guidelines, part 4, there's a split 
infinitive in the parenthesied part.
