  On this I can tell you there's almost no chance of a problem there.
Underlying CPU implementation features are barely even exposed under
SunOS, much less able to be depended upon by userland software.

  Heck, I've even run SunOS4 32-bit BSD-based binaries under SysV-based
Solaris on 64-bit UltraSPARC systems.  I know I've done that under
Solaris 9, not sure if I've done it on 10 or not.
