The problem is that regmach64.h should be regmach64.c (as it was orignally coded)
but for some reason it has been patched up this way. Atleast this is my take on it.
With all the macros and defines across several includes, mac64im.c just wont pick
it up for sparc.

No, it's a normal server.

The sparc stuff is not from upstream, so I have no idea what they will do upstream
and no I'm not and xfree member.
