I completely get your point, however we are faced with two pretty 
equally unpalatable options, either fork PB 2.5.0 and add support for 
Solaris SPARC or switch to 2.6.1.

Although as I've found out, even though 2.6.1 claims to support Solaris 
SPARC it doesn't, and needs a patch (albeit a small one) to get it to 
work :-/ From what I can gather, cross-platform support in PB breaks 
fairly regularly,
