The key thing is to find out what cpu and what compilers you have available.
The "sparc" keyword really means that you will be using Sun's compilers, and
may have compiler settings for the sparc architecture as well.

Others have pointed out that "Sun Ultra 40" may well mean AMD or other chips.
The key thing is the compilers. If this is the case, my suggestion to use
"sparc" was incorrect.

This means that you don't have the Sun cc compiler installed. It may well be
that you have gcc available; in that case, you will need some other flags.
