It's not intended that multiarch supports switching architectures. Of course it would help to import some 64bit packages selectively from a sparc64 port but most of your binaries would still be 32bit with the only partially supported code generation? Even on a rebuild you would have to pull in the 64bit libs in a way you build against them by default? (Or would that boil down to passing another DEB_*_ARCH so that config.guess targets 64bit and stuffing that into simple packages with arch:sparc?) Kind regards, Philipp Kern -- .''`.
