I've installed this on an Ultra5.  Seems to work fine.  Survived a
reboot.  Some minor problems that need to be fixed in other apps
(xterms end up using ttyp? instead of pts/?).  BTW, the pts stuff is
enabled for sparc in the 2.2.5 kernel.

On the plus side - ssh works on the sparc with glibc 2.1.1-0.1.1 but
not on the x86 with glibc 2.1.1-0.1 (SIGPIPE) - go figure.
