After some time away I have decided to create some unofficial packages
for sparc64 to see if there is any interest.

I've updated the instructions on the wiki.  Note that I've rearranged
the directories on the server, and gotten rid of the hardcoded IPv4

I am going to do this on a best-effort basis.  Please let me know what
