Ah, the same kind of machine I had sitting around in my office for quite
a while ;)

No, in contrary. 

Solaris2.7 unix/posix once definitely had worked, Solaris2.7 is also is
the Solaris release I still have access to (so actually could test) and
for which I have i386-linux->sparc-sun-solaris2.7 gcc cross toolchains.

The actual problem is the Unix/Posix  BSP having had far less attention
paid to it than the embedded cross-targets, so it is suffering from code

At present time, the unix/posix BSP RTEMS-CVS-trunk does not build for
me for any "unixy" target :-(

IMO, the easiest way to getting you started probably is to use an
embedded target on a simulator.
