Don't follow such instructions. They mislead you by giving the
impression that gcc supports sparcv9 (aka sparc64). It does not. Don't
use gcc on that architecture, at least not in 64-bit mode. It is not
supported, and has numerous bugs.


P.S. If I only could get the FAQ-o-matic to work for me again, so I
