This is cross-posted to comp.soft-sys.math.mathematica and comp.sys.sun.apps.
One of our users who is running Solaris 2.5 on her SPARC is concerned that
the Solaris version of Mathematica requires the presence of a binary
compatibility library. Besides the issue of a compatibility library that
Sun might remove unexpectedly at some point, creating problems for code
that depends on it, she suspects the library might have a significant
effect on Mathematica's performance, versus what it could be in a Solaris
native version. Our contacts at Wolfram don't seem to think it's a great
concern and said they might run some comparative benchmarks for us; I'm no
judge since I don't use Suns.
Has anybody anything to offer? Is it a significant issue?
