Yes, all of the UltraPenguin sparc64 stuff was folded into RH 6.0,
_and_ some newer work by JJ and DM was added to RH 6.0 (incl. Ultra X
server fixes).  (This really does make sense - a lot of Jakub's time
was spent recompiling newer upstream RH stuff when it could have been
better spent fixing stuff.)

But we did get there first - released Debian 2.1 before RH 6.0. :)
