Given that apt 0.8.15 worked (as confirmed by Kurt Roeckx) and doesn't only on sparc{,64} i suspect a compiler issue, too.

Further more, the diff between these two versions is pretty small and
doesn't include changes to the http acquire method.

So, for a start, could someone with access to a sparc-box recompile
0.8.15 with gcc-4.6 to verify that it is indeed compiler related?
(by observing that this rebuild would be broken, too)

(Adding d-sparc@d.l.o so they can have a look at that, too)

Best regards
