I have the same machine with the same specs. It's worked fine with 
FreeBSD since 6.0-RELEASE IIRC. You should have no problems with the 
base and the more common sparc64 ports. Mine was previously running as a 
general purpose web box with Apache, BIND, MySQL, etc. All built without 
a single problem.

If you have any problems, post here. I'm open to ridding it of Debian 
and reinstalling with FreeBSD if you need some assistance. :-)
