Sorry, I should have said Solaris 2.x, a major change from SunOS.  NB that 
although SunOS 4.2.x was sometimes referred to as Solaris 1.x, and Solaris 
2.x is sometimes referred to as SunOS 5.x, generally SunOS is considered to 
mean 4.x (are we all confused now?).  GCG binaries for for version 8.0 will 
not run under SunOS 4.2.x.  Version 7.x came with 2 sets of binaries, 1 for 
SunOS and 1 for Solaris.
