AFAIK, this is irrelevant as the xsun servers don't use XF86Config.
I don't know which server is good for the Creator card, but if it's
one of the xsun or xsun24, you should be able to run the server without
any XF86Config at all.  OTOH, I see some other xservers in binary-sparc
which you may be using and which may need this config file.
