A few question for the Solaris guru:
What compiler do you use ? pkgsrc's gcc-2.95.3 ?
What's the recommended way of building 64-bit binaries ?
Is there a simple way to produce "fat" (both 32- and 64-bit) binaries
using gcc (like it's possible on PowerPC) ?

I've been avoiding Sun's compile chain as much as possible, because I
don't know much about Sun's ABI specificities. But then, even if there
is a performance hit when using 32-bit binaries compiled with GCC on
sparc64 machines, it doesn't seem to be very significant.
