If you want a quick way, download the kernel source, edit
arch/sparc64/kernel/pci.c:pci_name_bus(). Edit the sprintf line to look
like this:

	sprintf(name, "%02x", bus->number);

Then recompiled. Remember, this is a hack. A hack that is only needed
for PCI video cards. Soon enough XFree86 will be made to work correctly.
