This is good, since Solaris x86 binaries don't seem to work consistantly
well on Solaris 2.4 for x86.  Solaris 2.x x86 is awful.  At my previous
job we found that dynamically linked SVR4 binaries from other SVR4 intel
ports just plain don't work on Solaris x86 because the X11 shared libraries
are not quite the same...
