The most plausible cause for that is executables and/or dynamic libraries
not installing the user trap handlers as specified by the libc 64 psABI,
i. e. not call __sparc_utrap_setup(). Do the ports GCCs use their own CRT
nowadays? Do they no longer link libc last? Please provide their linker
invocation. Also, please provide the backtrace of a minimal program
exhibiting that problem.
