No, actually...or at least, I didn't. :-) I created a small directory
somewhere private, that contained a bunch of symlinks like
libc.so.1.8 -> /nfs/mount/point/libc.so.1.8
mount -t null -o ro,union /somewhere/private /usr/lib
and NFS-mount the SunOS machine's /usr/lib on /nfs/mount/point, and
Mind you, I definitely would prefer the /compat/sunos scheme. :)
