>From one of the follow-ups, I think you should use the rc5-sunos55-ultra
client for your SuperSPARC running Solaris 2.5. Furthermore, although
both run on SuperSPARC, the sunos53 version runs much slower than the
sunos55. In other words, the SPARC clients were built by OS, not by CPU,
leaving much optimisation to be carried out.
