Depends which sparc you're talking about. Afaik the sparc packages are
built for sun4/sun4c/sparcv7 architecture. Try some of the URLs at

Difficult to say - I haven't ever seen concrete figures to show that
recompiling everything on gentoo is anything more than a waste of
time. But again it depends on your architecture.

P.S. You mailed this to 'debian-sparc@list.debian.org', I think it
should be lists.debian.org (note the 's'). Not entirely sure how this
reached me - but my filters didn't work.
