Just for the record, the QMAX work fine (albeit slowly) on Solaris/Sparc 
(Same endianness as the axp).

However, when the pistol is fired, strange things happen: On machines with 
XVR-1000 graphics, the game freezes for a few seconds and on machines with 
XVR-600 graphics the freeze is shorter (although noticeable).
