[fpc-pascal] Problems with broken (or unclear) download urls for fpc-solaris

I wanted to download the latest freepascal for Sparc Solaris .
Opened the http://www.freepascal.org/download.var , clicked on
the "SPARC Solaris" link.
It opened the page for selecting the mirror.
Clicked on Sourceforge , which lead to :
The problem here is that this page doesn't seem to contain any Solaris stuff .
I went back to the mirror selection, and clicked on ftp.freepascal.org .
This link is ok , but it contains the 2.4.2 sparc solaris FPC .
This is not consistent with the main download page
(http://www.freepascal.org/download.var) , which implies that 2.6.0
is available for the entire list of platforms and operating systems
(which includes the SPARC solaris ... ).
Perhaps it's worth taking a look at the download page , so that it
presents in a clearer way which FPC version is available for each
platform ? For example create a separate section for the
less-supported platforms. The way it is now, it implies that 2.6
is available for all the platforms - which is unfortunately false.
I currently have ssh access to some Sparc Solaris servers. Does it
involve a lot of work to create the solaris builds ?
