At the moment this only builds for sparc (i.e. sparc32) due to a

It seems to me llvm itself would build for sparc64, but I cannot
verify that as I only have a sparc32 box.
The patch attached would be a start...
Actually, most sparc packages in Debian are built in 32-bit mode to make
sure that resulting binaries work both on sparc32 and sparc64. According
to buildd log, the system type was detected as sparc64. It might be a
result of a buildd misconfiguration discovered some time ago - one of them
was not actually switching to 32-bit mode before starting the build, as it
should. I'll try to investigate this further. Does it build on sparc32 at
