I believe WCS is only available for SPARCs. They do not give out
source.  There has also not been an update for two years from the
Arizona WCS group. However, I believe Bruce Schatz has now moved to
the University of Illinois at least that is what I remember from the
hype in Science from last August. The last e-mail address I had was
wcs at I would like to learn if WCS is still alive.

To answer your question for a SPARC  we run wcs on a IPC with 24Mb RAM,
and it requires 34Mb of disk space.
