sparc64 and sun4v share userland.  The sparc64 in universe overs 99%
of the compile test for sun4v already.

It seems a shame to compile sparc64 userland twice for universe.  And
on that note, do we compile i386 twice for i386 and pc98?

I might find myself more inclined to use 'universe' if it had less
duplicated work.
