Hi,
   We just went thry this in the bio-soft newsgroup a while ago, but in 
essence, I believe what your're looking for is either Open Molecule, a
commercial product (by Phils Mercurio (SDSC) and Cohen (Scripps) and sold by 
ANDATACO (619 453-9191) for about $1000.  It will run on a vanilla SPARC,
(but would like an accelerator board for decent performance).  If you want 
a demo version, let me know and I'll send you more info.
   Open Molecule is derived from FLEX, a freeware piece of work by Mike
Pique, also of Scripps (mp at scripps.edu).  This is _not_ commercial grade
software, but might be all that you need.  It can be FTP'ed from:
perutz.scripps.edu (137.131.152.27) from pub/flex.  In various incarnations
and compilations, flex supports Xlib, sunview, phigs, XGL, and DORE (sp?). 
   Rob Locher <locher at iastate.edu> has already gone tried to get FLEX up and 
running, so you might give him a call as well to see how he fared.

Cheers
