The question on invoking multi-threaded Hspice caused
me to discover something that I hadn't realized before.

There are several versions of hspice executables provided
in the Solaris distribution. The binary "hspice" is not
multithreaded. The binary "hspice_mt" is.

So, if you do the invocation as shown in the hspice documentation
that I refered to in my earlier message, you will be rewarded
with an error message informing you the binary isn't multithreaded.
You either need to call hspice_mt, rename hspice_mt as hspice, or have
a wrapper or alias that does it for you.
