A few relevant facts:

1. The internal compiler error you are encountering is only affecting 
the experimental sparc64 port. The same package version built fine on 
"regular" sparc:


2. The buildd machine you refer to is not a part of official buildd 
network, as it has been set up specifically to build packages for 
sparc64 port. Thus, it's unlikely that regular buildd admins would be 
able to do anything about it.

3. As far as I know, there is no DD-accessible sparc64 porterbox, so 
even DDs would not be able to help.

To be honest, I have no idea on how to handle bugs like this. To the 
best of my knowledge, a decision regarding inclusion of sparc64 in 
wheezy has not been made, and it has a long way to go to get to a 
point of achieving feature parity with the existing sparc port. I 
believe that Aurelien Jarno (CC'd) is the only person currently 
working on it, so perhaps he can shed some light on how to approach 

For the record, I'm not in any way opposed to the sparc64 port
effort, but I don't think it's realistic to get it into acceptable 
shape before wheezy release, so I tend to spend most of my available 
time fixing the "regular" sparc port problems.
