Maybe; I was referring to sun4u vs. other, older sparc32 architectures.
I had SparcStation at one point, and those were certainly not sparc64.
These are (obviously) not supported by debian-sparc64.

I'll have a look. It doesn't look like this package would only build/work on
sparc. Usefulness is a different matter - but that's probably outside the
scope of acceptance criteria?
