  It does seem strange, maybe I'm barking up the wrong tree.

  The ideal thing to do in this case would be to look at the config.log
 which will show you exactly why the ./configure script couldn't find

  If you have access to a host you could perform a manual build there
 and try it out.

  If not add a 'cat config.log' into the debian/rules and wait for
 it to be rebuilt.

  I can't either .. maybe just the configure script is doing something
 strange on sparc.
