Well, sunos ones appear to; on my SS1+ here, which is booting
sparc-linux off of a zip disk, but still mounts the original SunOS
4.1.3 disks under /sd/c/#, I made a symlink from /usr/lib/ld.so -> the
sunos copy, and then:

studentloan+% ( setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH /sd/c/1/lib:/sd/c/7/lib:/sd/c/7/5lib ; /sd/c/7/bin/uname -a )
Linux studentl 2.0.32 #1 Mon D sparc

So at least randomly selected SunOS programs work :-)  I've also run
xdpyinfo and xlogo (an old build of X11R6 done under SunOS) though
xterm didnt' quite work, probably because I needed another symlink
