Hmm... the semi-cop-out answer is "use menuconfig instead of xconfig 
because xconfig gets broken at times"... but maybe if it's not
selectable, then it is showing up when it shouldn't.  For sound hardware
on a sparc, you should only be able to select what drivers to include,
and there are only a few of them...

Simple solution to this... you're missing the sparc64-linux-gcc binary
which is the 64-bit sparc compiler that you need to build the sparc64
kernel with.  This is contained in the "egcs64" package... install that
and all should be well (assuming all other needed packages are

Good luck. :)
