Observe if you will, that it also happens to be more than just cosmetics:
One single - yet so important - gcc flag was the key secret for amd64, on wich many (all?) others have failed for a long time.
Including all x86 OpenSolaris distributions!

XFree86 has, btw, a much better sparc-Solaris support, than Xorg does.
Due to the fact, that Marc La France and Jakub Jelinek are still there,
rather than here.
So - if you intend to stay at Xorg's current support level for that
platform, mine or marTux' problem is that not.
If you call me a troll, I can go.
So your ML stays "clean".
