  Hi all,

I've checked out the Sun OpenBOOT code they provided, and gotten a 
little lost. I was curious if anyone else has reviewed or built the 

I've found the two key Makefiles:

I figured out that a 'make' from the latter works on building the tools 
for constructing the firmware, while the former uses them to build a 
firmware image. I've gotten stuck trying to build this since it causes a 
SIGSEGV in libc on my Ultra60. Would anyone else be interested if I 
start trying to patch it to have debug symbols and use gcc as well as 
Oracle Solaris Studio (SUNWpro)?
