Anyone interested in this topic can track the discussion at
https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=159780 .  Comments and
information most welcome.  (Weird looking forwarding is becalse I
received it at home, forwarded it to me at work, and neglected to notice
that gentoo-sparc@g.o. was not on the distribution --- it was sparc@g.o.
instead.)

Note that we at Sun do not provide "The JDK" for SPARC+Linux.  For some 
reason the only SPARC port we provide runs on Solaris ;-) fancy that.  
After we finish open sourcing the openjdk project I imagine more
headway could be made to supporting the openjdk on other
architecture/OS combinations than we provide from Sun.  Unfortunately
that doesn't help you today.
