Does GDC have sparc solaris backend support?

I'm trying to make my company use D and we have a bunch of legacy
machines that unfortunately run on sparc-solaris 2.10.

I spoke to a guy last year at GHM Paris and we discussed porting to SPARC. Last I heard from him it was still on his long long TODO list. Compiler support shouldn't be a problem, library support is lacking.

How much work would it be to add library support (in man-days/months)? Thx, Per

I would imagine that would vary very significantly depending on how familiar the person/people doing the work are with the inner details of sparc/solaris and druntime.
