If you wait a little while longer and still see no reply to
this message, I'd recommend sending this question over
to freebsd-sparc at  You might want to
check their charter first, but I'm guessing that they'd
be open enough to consider your question "on topic"
for their list.

I regret that I no absolutely nothing about the state
of FBSD on the *SPARC architecture :-(
