FWIW I tested RC3 today on my ancient Sparc. Lots of things has happened 
since so I'm not sure how relevant this is for RC6 but anyway: This 
machine has no problems building Jumbo-5 but it can't build Jumbo-6-RC3 
because there was a need for stdint.h (I only saw uint8_t which I could 
work around with ease) and strtok_r (it was present in string.h but 
required C99 or something like that? Anyway possibly fixed now) and 
getopt. That's where I had to call it a day, there may be more.

I really don't care if we raise some bars, just telling what I saw. I 
can revisit it tomorrow and possibly come up with a couple of fixes if 
that is wanted. Not sure about working around a missing getopt though... 
I couldn't find getopt among the Sunfreeware packages, maybe I looked 
for the wrong name.
