I realize this is a bit late.

The COMPAT_ options add support for different OSs of the same
architecture. So COMPAT_SUNOS only works on architectures (CPU types) that
ran SUNOS. Likewise COMPAT_SVR4 is only going to give Solaris support on
architectures that run Solaris (i386, sparc and sparc64 in our parlance).

Take care,
