Casper pointed me to the fact that it's actually looking for
/platform/{something}/kernel/unix  where {something} is the uname -i output
(SUNW,Ultra-80 in my case).  I added a symlink of SUNW,Ultra-80 pointing to
sun4u and voila.

It was asked if the original system was also a 420R -- I can't get to it at
the moment to check for sure, it might be a 6500, but was definitely not a

Thanks all.
