SunOS 5.5.1 is the same thing as Solaris 2.5.1, so no,
64-bit code won't work on that machine. I hope to get some
32-bit bitslice clients released in the not-too-distant
future; their performance isn't as impressive as the 64-bit
clients', but in general they do a bit better than the
current clients.
