Well, for upstream support there is: at the bottom of the page.  According
to doko sparc32 code generation is unmaintained upstream, and he doesn't
want to step up to maintain it any longer.

Furthermore I found the following thread dated back to 2007:

So far nobody stepped up to provide us with a working sparc64 port.
I know that aurel32 did some work on zee.debian.org, but was hurt by
bad RAM in that box (AFAIR).

What we are currently struggling with are build failures that happen on
one class of the builders, while not happening on the other, and IIRC
this is happening vice-versa.  Hopefully others can fill in the gaps I
left here.

Kind regards,
Philipp Kern
