I have an SS5/110 running -current from 9/26/2005.

cpu0 at mainbus0: MB86904 @ 110 MHz, on-chip FPU
cpu0: 16K instruction (32 b/l), 8K data (16 b/l): cache enabled


CPUFLAGS = -mv8 -mtune=supersparc


makeoptions     CPUFLAGS="-mv8 -mtune=supersparc"

I'm not having any problems with sh at this time.
