In this particular case i fail to seem the relation with FreeBSD. You
are talking about Solaris for the I386 platform, what does that have to
do with FreeBSD? It's like comparing a sheep with a goat, both can walk,
only one has other options then the other..

If solaris has support of building the stuff used in FreeBSD then it's
not required for FreeBSD having ibsc2 and svr4 onboard.

Still, i fail to see the relation to FreeBSD. Sorry if i misunderstood Alex.
