Here's my machine specs:

Ultra 2 Enterprise
2x300mHz CPU
1GiB Ram
2x18.1G SCSI drives (SUN18G's)
Kernel 2.6.6

Now, this is while running firefox, bittorrent (73KiB / 76KiB), xfce,
and about 9 xterm consoles.

Gotta love bittorrent for transferring ISO images. fwee!

Anywho:

(freshly emerged version:)
# time sloccount /usr/src/linux-2.4.28-sparc
[...]
real: 6m18.755s
user: 3m28.700s
sys:  1m40.590s

What this translates into? Eh. I dunno.  But my sparc is fast enough 
and stable enough for my at-work-workstation, and it's directly connected
to the internet 24x7 without any firewalls.  I can pretty much guarantee
that while it may have had hacks thrown at it, it's not going to respond
to any of the shell code that's out there. 

Oh, I guess I should state that sloccount isn't marked for ~sparc, but
compiles and works perfectly.  Dunno if somebody wants to tag it. :-)
