borel is a Sun Blade 1500 (1 2GHz Intel Core-2, 8GB RAM) running
Oracle Solaris 11.3.  It is on a maintenance contract, and is kept
up-to-date with the latest Solaris patches, so it is as leading-edge
Solaris as we can get.  Oracle is known to be working on Solaris 12
internally, but doesn't announce a timeline for it.

MUSL is definitely an outlier in the GNU/Linux world, but more
distributions are switching to it (see

).  Its memory model poses problems for both emacs and tcsh.  Still,
it is a ground-up redesign of -lc with the intent of being both
memory-compact, and POSIX compliant, so we should definitely try to
make most GNUware work on MUSL-based distributions.
