If you want to add an OpenSolaris 06/2009 machine to your buildbot, I
can do it. This is a  real 3.33 GHz machine, not a virtual one. It's
currently used as a buildbot client for Sage, but you are welcome to
use it too. Just let me know a username - anything except "buildbot",
as that's in use.

t2.math is now working ok now - the setup has changed a bit, but its
now working.

For 64-bit Solaris builds, it would be good if you can verify if
libecl has any text relocation issues. The easiest way to do that is
using "elfdump"
