This is correct.  While there is a sparc64-unknown-linux-gnu setup
floating around, it is strictly for compiling the kernel.  Also, there
are some ebuilds (like glibc) that may depend on
sparc-unknown-linux-gnu existing or they will fail.

As for why userland is 32 bits, take a look at the whole thread on
this topic from the sparclinux mailing list archives[1].  While it is
a bit dated, I believe the information is still relevant.
