Source packages which no longer build binary packages on any
architecture get reported as cruft which we clean up every few days:

I removed several more packages that might also be needed on sparc64 (I
don't have an idea what is needed there). Check the removal log around
that time.

The packages still needed should probably be uploaded to the sparc64
section of the Debian ports archive.

Files no longer in use only get removed after a delay (currently 1.5
days). That time hasn't yet passed since the sparc removal.

I consider rmadison is a more useful tool to check which packages are
still available.
