By "upgrade document" I guess you mean the Sarge Release Notes for Sparc?

I don't understand this. Woody backports for both packages have been 
provided exactly to avoid those dependencies.
Are you sure that your sources.list was pointing to Woody and the special 
location containing the backported modutils and initrd-tools?

Could you post the output of:
apt-cache policy modutils
apt-cache policy initrd-tools
apt-cache policy libc6
