well, exactly, that is the point: solaris 9 has no amd64 support at all.
Thus "mgar build" on solaris9 intel shouldn't "fail" by saying that 
amd64 is not a supported ISA, since it makes no sense.

Dagobert's trick does work, but I wonder if it is now needed for every 
single packages available for solaris 9?
