Fetch the matching version for git-man from here:

Debian Ports unfortunately immediately purges "all" packages from the
archive the moment a new version is uploaded to unstable, independent
whether any of the architectures still needs the older version for
whatever reasons.

You need to add "unreleased" to your sources.list [1]:

deb http://ftp.ports.debian.org/debian-ports/ unreleased main

sparc64-only packages cannot be in unstable until sparc64 has become a
release architecture.
