Elite3D are "supported" (like Creator/Creator3D, i.e. as far as sc(4)
is supported on sparc64). One might need to install the sysutils/afbinit
port in order to run Xfree/Xorg (this should be only necessary for
hardware acceleration but is required in any case here). With the
x11-servers/xorg-server 6.8.1 port most likely Sun keyboards once again
don't work at the moment (no support in the new "kbd" driver for FreeBSD),
the last 6.7 port is fine though.
