what to do about umul instructions and old SPARC boxen



Can you guys look at the bug logs of #111581 and advise me?

http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=111581&repeatmerged=yes

I need to know if this is indeed a kernel bug, and/or if there is
anything that can be done with the XFree86 packages to prevent this that
wouldn't be very unpleasant.

The current thesis is that compiling XFree86 on a modern SPARC processor
causes "umul" instructions in the object code, which older SPARC
processors don't recognize.
