I do have access to a sparc-1+ 32Mb sun-OS 4.11. with gcc-2.7.2 on it
with most other gnu-tools.

can you pack the sources and the build instructions into a gzipped tar
file and let me know where I can pick it up ?

If you are interested I can mail you a copy of the raw index and a
copy of the xindy-output (including the repeated parts of the index)
let me know if this is of help.
