There is the svr4 emulation layer, but it doesn't work under sparc64
yet.  This is complicated by the fact that svr4 is for 32bit binaries
and currently sparc64 only runs 64bit binaries.

I have done some work on making svr4.  I have gotten it so that the
elf32 binary from solaris is dispatched to the svr4 emulation layer,
but it promptly fails due to no having completed the svr4 layer for
signal delivery and the like.

So, no, but it'd be great if someone got it working.
