I have an AMD64 machine that runs a 64-bit flavor of GNU/Linux.
I have a Sun SPARC64 machine that runs Solaris 7 with a gnu compiler toolset.
Now if I want to use both these machines to run FlightGear, will it

1) Will it work ?
2) Is data transfer between two flight gear apps done only via XML ?
3) Isn't XML very slow ?
Remember that the endianness of the AMD64 and SPARC64 are different.
As of today I do not have a good Gfx card for the SPARC64, so I have not tried
running/compiling FG on it, but if this scenario works, I will spend
some cash/time/effort getting one.
4) If it does not work, and if I install Linux on the SPARC64, will
the endianness make a difference. Will it work then ?
