We support what we have access to here at INRIA, namely Solaris on
32-bit SuperSPARC processors.  (We stopped buying SPARCstations circa 1995,
when Linux or BSD PCs started to make a lot more sense.)

Based on users' feedback, SPARC/Linux and SPARC/BSD have worked in the
past, and UltraSPARC in 32-bit mode seems OK too, but you may have to
adjust a few things to get the latest OCaml running on the latest

Patches for UltraSPARC, BSD, or whatever are welcome, as long as we
can still test OCaml on our old SuperSPARC/Solaris.
