[rc5] Why not have Solaris clients autodetect?

Unless there is a speed issue, I can't think of any reason
not to have the Sparc architecture machines auto-detect their
cpu type via the arch -k command.

This way, there is no need for a generic and ultra binary.

(Ultra's will return sun4u, 5's, 10's and 20's sun4m and
IPX, SS2's sun4c.)

So, why not?
