Thanks for the bug report.
This *was* a feature, not a bug :-)
Ron, Reuti, and I (plus a few Sun developers) added this fix. The reason was:
- Linux 2.4 was used as a build machine at Sun.
- the 2.4 package needs to be used for both Linux 2.4 & Linux 2.6.
So other people build their own from source, and found that it is
still not used (arch script points to lx 2.4 even on Linux 2.6). So we
added the logic in the arch script to see when it should return 2.6 -
when it is on Linux 2.6 and it detects 2.6 binaries.
However, as 2.4 is not commonly seen, and my build machine is 2.6, may
be we should take that logic out...
