As I understand it this is an FTP master problem: since the implementation of NEW handling for p-u (around the time of the Sarge r2 release) there have been no syncs of any security updates from p-u to unstable/testing for any package. > Either the version in proposed-updates should be added to unstable too, > or a new version uploaded.

There is a 2.6 kernel that supports sparc32 (2.6.16) and e.g. daily 2.6 netboot images are already available for sparc32. There are also d-i images for CDs based on 2.6, but these are not yet supported in debian-cd as adding them would break weekly CD builds.
