I know this isn't directly helpful, but when I tested Lazarus on SPARC 
OpenSXCE I started off with the 2.x installer... which I don't 
immediately see available any more. Is there anything I can do to help 
build this, or is there a generic installation script that can be used?

Graeme, what's the situation with Solaris on i386 and x64? I've seen 
comment that as supplied by Sun it selects either a 32-bit or a 64-bit 
kernel etc. depending on the hardware, but I notice that OpenSXCE (n 
Illumos derivative) has separate DVD images. Is FPC 32- or 64-bit on 
this platform, or are there two variants?
