Yes. My first guess is that /etc/make.profile on your system is pointing to a kernel 2.4 profile (i.e. /usr/portage/profiles/default-linux/sparc/sparc64/2006.0/2.4) If this is the case, change it to point to something like /usr/portage/profiles/default-linux/sparc/sparc64/2006.0 or /usr/portage/profiles/default-linux/sparc/sparc64/2006.1 For 2.6 kernels, gentoo-sources is the suggested package as it will contain fixes that vanilla-sources won't.

2.6 has been better at handling non-Sun PCI devices than 2.4 was. I'd suggest trying 2.6 to see if this resolves the issue.

What type of system are you using here? Blade 100, 150, 1000 or 2000 should work fine with USB input (since its the only input system on those models). Make sure you have USB HID support enabled in the USB driver section. Also, if you are using a USB keyboard in either 2.4 or 2.6, make sure /etc/conf.d/keymaps uses an x86 style keymap (i.e. us) rather than the default sunkeymap or another Sun keyboard specific keymap.
