How about compiling it on the 32-bit machine?
It's sure to work, and it takes the least work.
Cross-compiling (might work for you):
If you use GCC, set the compile options accordingly. Take a
look at the following pages (depending on which version you
use) abou SParc compile options:
I think you're looking for "-m32". If you know the processor
type of the 32-bit machine, you might set "-mcpu=TYPE". You
can usually get the CPU information out of one of these commands
on your 32-bit machine: "dmesg", "prtconf", "prtdiag".
This might be one way to set the compile options:
$ ./configure CFLAGS="-m32" CC=`which gcc`
This might be another way:
$ CC=`which gcc`
$ export CFLAGS CC
I've never really tried cross-compiling, but it's worth a shot
if you don't have a compiler on your 32-bit machine. Perhaps
someone who has successfully done it before could speak up.
If you don't use GCC (ie: Sun Compiler), I don't know what other
options they'd use, but I'm sure it's in Sun's documentation
somewhere. If you want to get a copy of GCC instead (and GNU
make/binutils), you might try www.sunfreeware.com .
