I have only glanced at this, but here's my standard question:
What release are you trying to build?  You are starting at a
5.2.1-release system, but what are you updating to?

The little that I can add is that I just finished a buildworld on
sparc64 last night, and it seemed to go fine.  It takes me about 9
hours to do a complete buildworld, so I can't say if it is broken
right now.  In my case, I was building a 6.x-current system, but
there would be several extra steps that you really must do if you
are upgrading from 5.2.1-release to 5.x-latest or 6.x-current...

Also note that there is a mailing list for sparc64 questions.  I
suspect that most sparc64 developers are also following this
mailing list, but I can not say that for sure.
