Just a few apps that had compile problems, seemingly from glibc 2.0/2.1

I uploaded a newer one to unstable a bit ago. Presumably the egcs 1.1.2
does not compile sparc64 kernels. When the mainline egcs package can do
this, we should just be able to compiled with --with-cpu=ultrasparc and
get a dual target gcc right with a default of -m32 (-m64 must be
specified) right?

Yes yes yes! I really need to be able to run the libc5 java.
