Why compile Owl off another distro?
You do need another distro to install from on SPARC as we currently
don't have bootable ISO images for SPARC. For that purpose, RH 6.2 is
known to work, but almost any other Linux distro you might have installed
should work as well. Only rpm2cpio and some GNU tools should be needed.
Once you get Owl installed in this way (from the binary packages we
distribute), you can also rebuild it from source. But you don't have to.

Any time you like. ;-)

There's no fetchmail included and I don't even know what grepmail is.
The mutt package on Owl includes POP3 and IMAP client functionality.
Alternatively, you can of course install fetchmail or anything else
you like, at your own responsibility.
