I don't know if it is in 1.6 or new in 1.6.2. I looked at several 
releases of *BSDs to find one that did support SMP since a SPARC20 is 
really only fun for me with more than one CPU.

Support appears to be in 1.6.2 for alpha, VAX and SPARC. I seem to 
recall I had to do a little more than just edit a file and run config 
ane make for a new kernel. I had to add an include or merge a config 
file I think....
