Which version of linux-headers are you running?  Can you do an `emerge 
- -pv linux-headers` and show the output?

I have no experience with SPARC32, but 2.4 is a fine kernel, and not 
wholly different (from a user/administrator perspective) than 2.6.  You 
have to use devfs instead of udev.  .:shrug:.

I know a little about running (Hardened) Gentoo Linux 2.4/2.6 on SPARC64, 
although I imagine it's not drastically different for the SPARCStation 5. 
So let's start with your kernel-headers version and go from there.  Also, 
if you could post /usr/src/linux/.config and (if possible) any dmesg 
output, that'd be great.
