hmm, doesn't look like the v2 client is ready for the Sun SPARCstation 5
just yet.  gets about half the speed of the v1 client.

you guys need to get in touch with me about optimizing the ASM code.  i'll do
what i can to make the Sun client as speedy as i can.  keep in mind the sparc5
is not a supersparc CPU so the supersparc optimization is hurting it, but
both my v1 and v2 are the precompiled -supersparc versions.  i'll do a
benchmark tomorrow on a supersparc machine and let you know what i turn up.
