On the basis of the replies ..
Purify is broken on SS-10 because of a re-mapping of the stack. It should
run with 4.1.3 on earlier SPARC's.
No one reported any major problems on any other packages. I was told
by Ingres in the UK that version 6.4/02 would be certified on 4.1.3
and was due in the first half of November.
