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.
