magically appears in front of Hamish Greig:

I did compile a 32 bit version of the same code; it was just 1k. I
think it might be pulling in unnecessary stuff.

Yeah, thanks, I will ask on the more specific Sparc mailing lists
rather than the Gentoo lists.

The reason why I ask is because I want to help to get 64bit userland
upand running on my Ultra 2, I was thinking along the lines of having a
mix of 32bit and 64bit userland stuff.
