Cool, now I know: (1) sun4m is supported through 9/2004 release of  
Solaris 9. (2) From that document, in some manner the libraries  
should work for both 32 and 64 bit sparc architectures. (3) This  
probably does not apply to everything in the CSW archives.

So my plan is: Download a fresh set of iso images and then reinstall  
Solaris 9, add patches that are needed, and then get CSW working  
again. While everything from sun looks like it will support sun4m 32  
bit architecture if they release it for Solaris 9 (or 8 or 7), since  
if it was only 64 bit I imagine they would simply say it's for  
Solaris 10, I suspect I would have to figure out how to build some  
apps manually with 32 bit libraries or live without.
