Argh, I totally screwed up on this one, I created the branch at the 
wrong place.

There are several things missing in the current implementation: first, 
it should look for sunperf automatically, not using this SUNPERF thing, 
and also, the sun compilers do not use any flags. I am not sure if it is 
because I did something wrong to disable them, or if I need to add them 

For the warning, the flags may be of some importance, I don't know. I 
don't remember having seen so many warnings on Linux, though. Would be 
interesting to know what you get on sparc. I should have said that for 
now, this is mainly random hacks on a platform I don't really know, so I 
would not use it without more testing first.
