"Function not implemented" means that the program is trying to call system
calls which do not exist. Perhaps the RSBAC patch does not change the Sparc64
system call table (or not properly). Or you did not enable RSBAC properly in
the kernel.

What RSBAC and Linux version are you using? If you type uname -r, you should
see something like: 2.4.20-rsbac.

If you like Debian, you might consider looking at the Trusted Debian project
(www.trusteddebian.org), which is now under development. Unfortunately I don't
have 64bit Sparc hardware, so I can't provide you with any sparc64 kernel-image
packages and binaries at the moment.
