I can confirm that the 't2' you were using is a Sun T5240, it is running 
Solaris 10 update 7

kirkby at t2:[~] $ cat /etc/release
                        Solaris 10 5/09 s10s_u7wos_08 SPARC

I was the person that actually installed that OS!

ECL builds for me ok on Solaris SPARC (on both 't2' and another machine) 
using a 32-bit ABI. As for using a 64-bit ABI, I have never tried.
