Looking into cmucl-2012-01-sparcv9-solaris10.tar.bz2, it seems that the lisp
itself is 32-bit: file bin/lisp
bin/lisp: ELF 32-bit MSB executable, SPARC32PLUS, V8+ Required, version 1
(SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), not stripped

Looking at http://www.cons.org/cmucl/platforms.html, only x86 and amd64 (using
the x86 32-bit binaries) are supported on FreeBSD. Only solaris is supported
on sparc hardware.

And according to http://sbcl.sourceforge.net/platform-table.html, sbcl doesn't
run on FreeBSD/sparc. It seems that the latest release only supports x86 and
amd64, irrespective of OS.
