Not getting desperate, just think it would be very cool to get qemu-system-sparc64 to boot Solaris correctly, and willing to do some work to try to make that happen.  I'll keep poking around and get more familiar with the debuggers, and wait and see if any of the other folks on the list have any suggestions.  Thanks for all your help, Tarl!

Just for kicks I tried to use "-h" (lower-case "h"), instead, and that doesn't parse any better than -H.
