I run Cyrus on Solaris 10, SPARC and x86, no (real) problems.

I compile everything 64-bit so there are a couple of tweaks to find the
right libraries and I've separately packaged and installed Berkeley DB in
/opt/bdb, and SASL in /opt/CYRsasl2. If you want some packages let me know
and I'll make them available. I haven't tried 2.4.0 yet although I plan to
sometime in the next month, at least in our staging environment. Some of
the changes look pretty significant and I'm wary of any 64-bit alignment
problems that might be lurking there that will show up on SPARC.

Here's my configure script, should it help.

CC='gcc -m64' export CC
CFLAGS="-m64 -g -fPIC" \
LDFLAGS="-static-libgcc -L/usr/sfw/lib/64 -R/usr/sfw/lib/64" \
./configure \
        --prefix=/opt/cyrus \
        --with-cyrus-prefix=/opt/cyrus \
        --sysconfdir=/opt/cyrus/etc \
        --with-openssl=/usr/sfw \
        --with-sasl=/opt/CYRsasl2 \

exit 0
