Hello Ross,

I had the same problems with the SUN binaries on a SUN SPARC 10. Because I have
no much patience I have copy and compile the source files. There are some   
problems during and after the compilation, but now I can make some nice couloredmaps (and many outher things with it).
If you have problems during the compilation, let me know!
