SPARC covers at least half a dozen different sub-arches, each with a
different MMU. sun4u (miscalled sparc64 in linux -- sparc64 is a
different arch from fujitsu linux doesn't support) is the most likely
to be of interest, followed by sun4m (the only remaing 32 bit sparc
architecture Debian supports).
Unfortunatly, I can't answer your question, I never got into that
kind of detail.
