I’m not quite sure. sparc is no longer an official release architecture,
but there is sparc64 on debian-ports.org, so maybe that it targeted for
Debian eventually.

I’ve CCed the right list for this, they might know more.

@debian-sparc, some context: Karel is talking about the Haskell compiler
GHC and his work on making it produce native sparc code.
