If that's your only complaint then download the latest version of Nevada. Build 98 has a lot of the software you miss in Sol10. Not quite on OpenSolaris level but its a big step up anyway. Oh, and make sure /usr/sfw is actually in your path... Linux/Sparc is fragile at best. Even Ubuntu/Sparc on a T2000 (a Sun certified configuration) isn't nearly as stable as Solaris on the same HW.
