I could probably put a SPARC system on a public address if you wanted to 
play with it, that's how somebody (Marco?) originally got Lazarus 
running. However, much of my hardware is creaking and I'm not in as good 
a spares position as I used to be.

Looking at systems here, I can see that I've got as far as 3.0.0 on both 
(32-bit) Linux and on Solaris (OpenSXCE, based on Illumos) together with 
Lazarus 1.6.0 in both cases. I've also been compiling 3.0.1, but that 
goes back more than a year.

However those are fpcsrc builds only, rather than the whole thing 
suitable for an ab-initio installation.
