I've applied the following patch to the Makefile:

Would somebody kindly try to build the package?

The solution you've proposed fails due to at least three different reasons:

* The changes to the CC_FLAGS which the patch implements are inside the
ifeq ($(UNAME),SunOS) ... endif block, so they would never be triggered on Debian.

* The attempt to determine the architecture is done by looking at the result of 'uname -p' command. On Debian uname does not support a '-p' option.

* Since you have forgot to create the 00list or 00list.sparc file in the debian/patches directory, the patch you describe does not even get applied during the build :-)

The corrected patch looks like this:

You can find the corresponding dpatch scriplet at [0]. In order to get it applied, you need to create the debian/patches/00list.sparc file, which is also given there (by the way, if you want the amd64 patch to apply as well, creating debian/patch/00list.amd64 is a good idea). With these changes the package builds fine in a sid chroot, build log and the sparc deb are available at [0] as well. Unfortunately, I cannot test the package, since I do not have sound configured.
