The sparc isn't entirely well-behaved. The unregisterised
compiler seems fine, but the first go at building a registerised
GHC built a stage1 compiler that "couldn't allocate memory".

However, I was being ambitious and had turned on everything:
nativeGen, ghci, regs, tail calls etc. I'm being more cautious
second time around.

I'm having a go at alpha (osf3) too, I'll let you know.

As an aside: I'll post bin-dists when registersied builds work.
