I built it yesterday on a machine with two USIIIi CPUs running
Solaris 9. There were no problems.

I seem to recall hearing that the Linux kernel has problems on
some UltraSPARC models. You should ask around in the sparclinux
mailing list.

My private SPARC is a U5 w/ a USIIi CPU, and both Linux and
Erlang/OTP work flawlessly on it.
