I think I read a note about this on the sparc linux page; something like 
1) make a device for the mouse with mknod
2) install the sun X server binary.
3) startx
4) optionally install olvwm, xdm, etc

I'm more interested in Ada; have you read the distributed systems annex? It
eats other attempts at distribution for breakfast. It also produces binaries
or (soon) java byte code at the flick of a compile time switch.
(See ACT's JGNAT and Intermetric's Applet Magic).
