  Can you offer a "jabber client server" (wow, that sounds weird) that is
a newer system and have people log in run the jabber client there,
displaying it back on the older Suns?  So all of your old Sun users log in
to jc.your.domain, setenv DISPLAY oldsun:0.0 and run psi or gaim or
whatever you can compile on the newer system?  That might be easier than
investing time in supporting odd software on old systems that (hopefully,
right?) will be going away soon.
  Sorry I don't have anything to offer on the problem you're trying to
