I have access to a Solaris 8 machine, but it's only 32 bits wide.

I did a quick build of Py 1.5.2  (which I haven't run for quite some time!)
under both the native (SunPro) compiler and also using gcc 2.95.2

I configured  --with-thread and ran the test suite.

There were no compile-time errors or warnings, but one test failed:

 test test_popen2 crashed -- exceptions.AssertionError : 
  Traceback (innermost last):
   File "./Lib/test/regrtest.py", line 204, in runtest
     __import__(test, globals(), locals(), [])
   File "./Lib/test/test_popen2.py", line 16, in ?
   File "./Lib/test/test_popen2.py", line 14, in main
   File "./Lib/popen2.py", line 95, in _test
     assert not _active

This happened with both the gcc and SunPro builds.

Everything else looks OK, but I did not do any extensive tests beyond
"import test.testall"
