You can do your own build testing on sparc64 by setting up a sparc64
build environment...  This involves a full FreeBSD check-out, and
make toolchain TARGET_ARCH=sparc64
make buildenv

After the second command, you will be dropped into a shell that has
the path set for building sparc64 binaries...  you can then cd to
your distribution, and make it..  I'm not sure how this will interact
w/ the ports system, so you may have to bypass the ports system and go
directly to to hdf5's src dir..
