Hm, when it comes down to it, the ultrasparc can't compile.  Turns out
it has neither patch nor make.  :-)  I did a zcat ../glibc*diff.gz
| (LD_PRELOAD=../lib/libc-2.0.93.so ../lib/ld-2.0.93.so ../bin/patch -p1),
which actually worked, boggling people on IRC, but then I got this:

checking host system type... sparc64-unknown-linux-gnulibc1
checking whether ln -s works... yes
checking build system type... sparc64-unknown-linux-gnulibc1
checking for gcc... gcc
checking version of gcc..., bad
checking for make... make
checking version of make... 3.75, ok
checking for msgfmt... no
checking for gmsgfmt... no
checking for makeinfo... no
configure: error:
*** Some critical program is missing or too old.

So Im thinking either they need to install the rest of the RPMs, or
let me copy over a working devel environment from my sparc and chroot
to it, or replace their 2.0.6 with 2.0.93 so we can just install
Debian and be done with it.  :-)

Still some tcpip flakiness here -- i could ftp into xia01 but not out
to llug.sep.bnl.gov, for example.

Well the glibc-pre2.1_2.0.93-980414-1.diff.gz seems to modify these


Exactly why is beyond me -- it was Juan Cespedes <cespedes@debian.org>
who assembled this.

Did you see?  2.0.93 was finally installed into hamm.  It almost
brings tears to your eyes.  ;-)
