Dunno for sure, but it looks like an automated mail generated for
errors resulting from an automated `make buildworld', or `make
buildkernel' (for the LINT kernel) run.  So whenever someone breaks
the world for sparc64 without noticing it (because e. g. it worked on
their IA32 architecture), this will tell us.
