I would hesitate to try Xorg 7 from Debian Sparc repositories except when thee 
is no alternative, i.e. bare metal.  Working pre-7 versions have disappeared 
from Testing so there is no easy way to revert if 7.0 is broken.  A definite 
mass breakage is that neither Testing nor Sid contains any of the 
xserver-xorg-video-sun* packages that provide drivers for ffb, tgx, leo, etc.  

A U60 I'm building has no X after a misguided dist-upgrade that wiped out Xorg 
6.9, which was working well.
