	   If you're trying to do this under sparc64, you need a -current
	   kernel and compat_svr4_32 instead, although /emul/svr4_32 can 
	   simply be a symlink to /emul/svr4.

	hmm..  seeing compat_svr4 (64 bit) use /usr/lib/sparcv9 paths, can we
	actually make comapt_svr4_32 use just /emul/svr4 ?  if the suggested
	method is to symlink them, what's the benefit of them being separate?
	do we expect people to actually install different versions on purpose?

I thought about this and decided that it makes sense to use
two different paths so you could, say, have solaris 2.3 in
/emul/svr4_32 because something only runs on the older OS,
and solaris 2.8 in /emul/svr4.

Will anyone use this feature?  Probably not.  Should we
remove it?  It's cheap, so we might as well leave it.
