Canonical recently dropped SPARC support for Ubuntu, and now here is Oracle
adding it to Unbreakable Linux.  This is only going to be useful if the
compilers can get better native optimization, GCC has always been very
behind the curve.  At least it is easy platform to target.

I've had more luck with OpenBSD running on UltraSPARC hardware than Linux, I
presume the support will be narrowed down to a few select pieces of kit.

Canonical dropping SPARC/IA64:
