I didn't try that patch yet, but the target part is wrong, as I tried to
explain.  Consider the sparc case: 

* if you configure for sparc-sun-solaris2.11, you default to -m32
  (i.e. ilp32), while -m64 is lp64

* if you configure for sparcv9-sun-solaris2.11 instead, you default to
  -m64 (lp64), but get ilp32 with -m32

So, irrespective of the sparc vs. sparc64 (which is wrong, btw., the
canonical form for 64-bit-default sparc is sparcv9) forms, you can get
ilp32 and lp64 with both.

Similar issues hold for i?86 vs. x86_64 and probably other biarch
targets like powerpc vs. powerpc64, so you need to use the most generic
forms of the target names in you target lists.

As I stated before, such target lists without any explanation are bound
to confuse future readers/testers: at the very least, add comments
explaining what those lists have in common.  OTOH, at this stage it
might be best to just drop the target list for now, learn which targets
pass and fail the tests, and then reintroduce them or, better yet, add
an effective-target keyword which matches them.  Otherwise, you'll never
get test coverage beyond your current list.

Huh?  What's -lp64?

It's not only about sparc, but about all biarch targets.  The following
patch (which only includes the parts strictly necessary to avoid the
failures, nothing else I suggested above) works for me on
sparc-sun-solaris2.11 (-m32 and -m64), x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu (-m64
and -m32), and i686-unknown-linux-gnu (-m32 and -m64): the first test is
run for 64-bit only, while the second one only for 32-bit:
