Hi Lorenzo,

Sun is, for all intent and purposes, a dead platform for us. While I
realize others may be using newer flavors of it, we've basically
stopped and use it only for the numerics which were/are quite good.
Our system is not being maintained so I'd guess your best bet is to
mark your library as unsupported on this platform.
