By default you don't get 64-bit builds. If you do not install
libc6-dev-sparc64. Dave didn't like this, but it's a compromise we came
to just because of this very point.
Even if you install libc6-dev-sparc64, you can override the default
easily by doing "touch /etc/disable_64_gcc".
Sure it needs to be documented, in the release notes for sarge.
