Turns out your "experimental CD" was just what I needed. I haven't
gone through and studied the differences in the configs yet, but I
snagged the 2.6.16 kernel config out of /proc/config.gz after booting
to the CD. I was able to use that (enabling the necessary SELinux
features of course) to get a bootable kernel. Now I am well on my way
to having an SELinux sparc system (on the 3rd page of the how-to ;-) )!
Thanks for the help. (And continue the good work!)
