I've been looking into the OpenEXR problem and a trivial work-around is 
building the graphics/ilmbase port without multithreaded file I/O support.

In debugging it though, it seems that gdb doesn't support thread 
debugging on sparc64 which is causing some problems... is this due to 
the lack of TLS?
