Well yes, I could rename the folder to sunos64x64, no problem.

By the way the interesting thing is that I've meanwhile discovered why my
32bit 5.0 vm ("cog spur") felt strange and was not doing fast redraws (I
reported that it had "screen update" issues, but that is solved now).

Because I copied a "mvm" script and modified it, it had a -g flag, and the
-g compilation flag had major impact, it seems, in my case (which in many C
programs is not the case, but for my vm apparently it did).

The "cog spur" vm 32 bit is also working fine on Solaris when I compile it
without -g.

What I'll do, is to cancel the "pull request" and try a new one after I
rename the folder.

Also I'm going to undo the commit that made "vm-sound-pulse" the default.  
This is for me on Solaris working nice, I prefer the "vm-sound-pulse" module
for pulseaudio sound, but I shouldn't have made it the default on all
platforms ...

Let me submit then after this, a new pull request ...
