I don't see why not.  I've uploaded a few of my own packages (dhcpcd,

I don't have "dbuild" going.  I did do a manual build of a bunch of
gnome stuff and I have betas of apt 0.30 and gnome-apt on my FTP site,
but that's about it for unstable.  I think Christian Meder does a lot
of package building for the Sparc

If you want to do the gnome stuff, talk to me first.  There is a
libtool bug that require a patch to ltconfig in most of the packages.
(Search for LSB and replace it with [LM]SB.)  Also, I have a patch to
the libzt stuff in gnome-libs that works around an UltraSparc problem.

Finally, as I was told by Christian Meder, make sure you build the
libc5-altdev stuff for source packages that have that option
(apparently it is still useful to some people).
