I have patches to make ocamlopt generate 64 bit code:
<http://www.mit.edu/~jfc/ocaml-3.08.1-sparc64.tar.gz>.

My changes only affect native code.  Byte code (ocamlrun) should work
in 32 or 64 bit mode with no source changes.  Maybe upgrading to 3.08
will help.  The Makefiles automatically add "-O" to the compiler
options so in your case there isn't much difference with or without
-fast.  You might try v9 or v9a instead of v9b just in case there
is a code generation bug.
