The config files that we are currently using for 2.2.1 on the sparc
are in my kernel source package at:


(The package has a patched 2.2.1 source and rules file that generates
both sparc and sparc64 kernels.)

There is an additional patch in that kernel to get the sparc64 stuff
to compile with RARP and BOOTP enabled, but it turns out that RARP and
BOOTP are broken on the sparc64, so you can just disable it.

Remember you need "egcs64" and "binutils" from slink to compile a
sparc64 kernel.  (As long as the kernel make commands have
"ARCH=sparc64" on the command line, a 64-bit kernel will be built,
even on a 32-bit machine.)
