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.
