getting OBP version; also, FAQ?

How does one cough up the OBP version information while booted into

I don't see it in the dmesg output or sysctl information, and didn't
find anything in the ht://Dig Mailman archives for the list.  The only
third-party product that I could find was the not-exactly-free product
Sysinfo (, which isn't
compiled for FreeBSD/sparc64 and provides no source to build it myself.

Also -- in preparation to ask this question, I went hunting for a FAQ.
Did I just miss it, or are there few questions that are frequently
asked? :)
