What's the status of svr4 emulation on sparc64? I forgot a critical piece; One needs a bootstrap JVM, and bootstrapping off of Sun's VM would make things easier.One can use a bootstrap JVM from another host (and architecture) and some scripts which use ssh to the bootstrap host and sharing files via NFS -- that's how I bootstrapped the NetBSD/amd64 version using the NetBSD/i386 version. I've attached my notes and the scripts I used to do this. (Admittedly, I've since tweaked the scripts to use environment variables, so they've not been tested in their present form...)

That's super useful, thanks! If you don't mind, I'm also going to forward your e-mail along to the OpenJDK Porters group, as it's pretty handy thing to have on record.
