I did some work on various ports using 64-bit CPU instruction sets
recently. Linux/Sparc/GCC and Solaris/Sparc/GCC are among of them and
both build fine and seem to work. But the former needs very new kernel
patches (I worked with Linux kernel maintainers to make it actually
work), the latter is missing installer so you'll need to install it by
hand. I haven't noticed other problems with this ports so far so bug
reports are welcome, as usual. :)
