Some more informations.  Sorry if I seem to be spamming the newsgroup, but 
this is basically the only thing I can do to advance on this issue.

Hi Francois-Denis,

I've done some additional investigation and it appears that the initial
version of my patch might not be the proper fix. The deal is that buildds
are operating in 32-bit mode (this is required to ensure that the
resulting binaries run both on 32- and 64-bit hardware), so uname -m will
actually return 'sparc' and not 'sparc64'. So it will require further work
to figure out the right fix, since even with my current patch erlang is
still likely to fail on buildds.

I'll try to look at it within the next few days.

Best regards,

Jurij Smakov
