Sorry about you not being able to run ClamAV. I was experimenting with
compiler options to make ClamAV build with Sun Studio and accidentally
dropped some other compiler mods when I found a working optimization.
I have now rebuilt the Sparc packages so you can test them.

You can find them here: http://buildfarm.opencsw.org/testing.html

Please confirm if those are ok.
