Support for this for sparc & sparc64 appeared after 1.6ZE but before
the 2.0 branch. It should work for any network device that supports
the "local-mac-address" in its device node.

If your hme hardware has a pre-assigned vendor mac address, it should
provide the "local-mac-address" attribute automatically. Otherwise,
you have to create the attribute yourself using some Forth code that
has already appeared in this thread.
