[HARDWARE] Solaris on SPARC keyrate

Has anyone else noticed that the benchmark keyrate (./rc5des -benchmark) is
way, way higher than the actual keyrate?

Is this a cross-platform thing? Is this expected behavior?
For example, a single 267MHz Ultra IIi benchmarks at over 4 million keys/s
(!!) but runs at only 300-400 KKeys/s!
(or so my cohort tells me!)
