Packages libklibc and klibc-utils missing for sparc64 on p.d.o

Hi all,

I today wanted to check if a new libklibc package is available for sparc64 that includes the fixes by James. I'd like to get my SPARC machines into a working state again. :-)

But unfortunately the libklibc and klibc-utils packages are no longer available for sparc64 as per packages.debian.org (see for example [1]). I believe I saw them around 2017-12-31, as I upgraded them on my Ultra 80 on that date, but maybe I'm mistaken.

[1]: https://packages.debian.org/sid/libklibc

As [1] also lists the corresponding packages for the unofficial ports alpha, hppa, ppc64 and others I wonder why sparc64 should be missing there. [2] lists only sparc and not sparc64 but that file wasn't changed recently IIUC. Hence I wonder why the packages were listed end of December 2017 but are gone now.

UPDATE: After checking the download path of the libklibc package for ppc64 and adapting it to sparc64 I was able to find the packages (on [3]), but still, shouldn't the klibc packages not also be listed on packages.debian.org?
