After talking with Kris and Mark, it appears that the best bang for
the buck is to help Hiroki Sato resolve outstanding hardware issues
with his e4500s.  This will get 10-14 CPUs back online.

Hiroki, what hardware or money do you need to get your e4500s back
online, in order to improve the speed of package builds for sparc64?
