Well, after copying RULES/i386-netbsd-cc.rul to RULES/sparc-netbsd-cc.rul,
doing a "./Gmake" did the job for me on a friend's IPC running 1.2.1.
The binary didn't recognize the Philips CD2000 as such then (using
/dev/scgx as a symlink to /dev/cd0c), reading a (full) CD's TOC (-toc)
was not possible, and i didn't want to waste a empty CD with the binary

A friend has contacted the author about it, but i don't know about
any replies.
