It means the files.sparc64 rules are botched.  I just committed the 
changes to head yesterday but you posted to stable@; what version of the 
os are you running?  I will mfc the changes to releng6 as soon as I get 
the ok.

FWIW the sparc64 hal has not been tested on freebsd so far as I know. 
It is known to work on netbsd and linux and is os-independent but beware...
