Yes, I'm pretty sure it is - same page as the Solaris 10 download. You
have to be registered with SUN but that shouldn't cost you anything.

It's a reasonably recent SPARC (a Blade 1000 for those who want to know).

There shouldn't be any activated at the moment. The compiler identifies
itself as 5.8 and the last set of config information in in sunpro_cc.hpp
is for version 5.7.

I'm trying the basic bjam "-sTOOLS=sunpro" stage at this point. I don't
have Python on this box yet so I won't be able to build the Python stuff
initially but I'll sort this out when I'll get around to it.
