have a few newbie questions:

1) how much one could expect from this port.. i mean how stable it is
2) what's all that "tricks" with gcc for sparc64? and shared libraries
3) how does ultrasparc IIe compare to pentium II/III (not only computing
but overall I/O performance too) - on netbsd of course

i'm asking just because i read about near 1000$ 1U rack-based ultrasparc
servers (netra X1). it's price is similar to wintel-based
rack-mount machines and it's not wintel.
