new rpms

I went ahead and put a Solaris package in the uploads section on the
rtems website.  It includes binutils 2.17, gcc 4.1.1 and gcc 6.5 built
to run on Sparc solaris building rtems for the following targets:
i386, sparc, mips, arm, and powerpc.

It installs in /opt/thoughtwave, which is where I do all of my toolchain stuff.

The whole thing is about 109MB compressed and about 500MB uncompressed.

You can bunzip it and then

pkgadd -d THOTesdk-2.17-4.1.1-6.5-sparc-solaris10

Then just add /opt/thoughtwave/bin to your PATH and
/opt/thoughtwave/man to your MANPATH.

Have a lot of fun,
