And don't forget, Solaris 7 was the first version to support actual
64-bit executables.  2.6 runs on 64-bit hardware, but doesn't run
64-bit executables.

Was  the problem code compiled under Solaris 7 on an UltraSPARC
machine?  That might explain why it doesn't work on a sun4c or sun4m
running Solaris 2.6.

Kick, kick, double-pole, glide, breathe, repeat ...  Air is crisp, sun
warm under the blue sky-dome.  Friends move nearby over fresh powder
through silent woods.  Awareness is here, now.  Work is a distant echo.
