I think the list you want is freebsd-sparc64 at freebsd.org. There is no
"sparc" port. The U5 is sparc64-* hardware.
FreeBSD runs very well on the Ultra5, but not in the function the U5 was
intended for by Sun (workstation). There is no VGA console/X11 support to
Performance is as to be expected for a 360mhz RISC chip.
I recommend replacing the original IDE disks with a 7200 RPM drive and an
ATA100 capable cable to get additional speed. I think the controller is
limited to UDMA3 or UDMA2, but even still its better than the OEM drive.
