Erlang 10.b.9 was ready to be uploaded when this guy came in on an old compile 
bug on sparc for version 10.b.7.  I suggested that he try the 10.b.9 package 
and he came up with this.

Having no access to sparc machines, so I'm ressorting to you guys.

Can anyone confirm, infirm, or contribute anything to this bug?

Attached is the first patch he contributed.

The source package downloaded from this site fails to build on sparc due
to a different error. It happens while compiling the source file
erts/emulator/beam/erl_bif_info.c:

beam/erl_bif_info.c:1041: error: 'am_ultrasparc' undeclared (first use in
 this function) beam/erl_bif_info.c:1041: error: (Each undeclared identifier
 is reported only once beam/erl_bif_info.c:1041: error: for each function it
 appears in.)

You can find a complete build log at http://www.wooyd.org/debian/erlang/

I'm including the md5sums of the source package files for reference:
