Xsun does (unfortunately) not know about gzipped fonts. The easy fix
is to set up a local X font server (xfs), and start Xsun with
'-fp tcp/localhost:7100'

You don't need xslibg if you're not doing any development (and hardly
even if you are). It's only use is to create statically linked X

They may need to be recompiled with the new libc... Do you get any
messages about changed or undefined symbols?

Nothing. Xsun knows how to figure out all the things that can change
on a sparc on demand (including keyboard layout, as long as you want
the one that matches the keyboard). Though it would be nice if there
was someplace one could keep the font path...
