I hope to find time to take a look at both 32- and 64-bit variants of 
OpenSXCE over the next few days, the 32-bit version might only be on Qemu.

I'm using OpenSXCE because it has a fairly up-to-date SPARC variant, 
which I don't believe is the case for Illumos. OpenSXCE appears to lean 
towards GNU utilities- I don't know whether that's its own quirk or 
whether it inherits that from Illumos, and I don't know whether that has 
any bearing on the FPC installation script which doesn't like- in 
particular- the Sun/Solaris/SunOS tar.
