Well, yes, this was very unfortunate. Ben Hutchings updated the klibc
package again before I was able to open a pull request on SALSA to
include the patch to fix the package.

Did you enable the console on the command line? Try adding "console=ttyS0"
or whatever the name of the serial console on your SPARC machine is.
