Randomly quoting application doesn't really help anybody here, the question 
is: Do they work (in whatever emulation).

Are you saying here that Maple V for Solaris/x86 does indeed work with the 
SVR4 emulation in -CURRENT right now and you're digging for that HDD in order 
to boot Solaris or are you saying you're going to test if Maple V for 
Solaris/x86 does work with SVR4 compat?

Perhaps it would be better to keep the compat bits as ports? It looks to me 
like there is a certain interest in them, just not among src committers.
