Oh, I see. The format of the lispinit.mem file depends on the hardware
page size (a C macro called PAGESIZE under Solaris). We should avoid this.
The following patch to the C source should do the trick (untested).

Without rebuilding the sources, you can generate a lispinit.mem file
for UltraSparc this way:
  - byte-compile all the .lsp files contained in the distribution,
    (init.lsp etc.), unless they are already byte-compiled,
  - rename lispinit.mem to lispinit-normalsparc.mem
  - On the UltraSparc, execute
    ./lisp.run -m 750KW -x "(load \"init.fas\") (sys::%saveinitmem) (exit)"
  - rename lispinit.mem to lispinit-ultrasparc.mem
Then adapt your /usr/local/bin/clisp shell script to dispatch on `uname -m`.
