Have you thought about bootstrapping the process. You could use an  
linux distro that supports sparc and then build the binaries there.  
Once you have a working system you can compile everything again to  
eliminate the dependencies on the host system.

I suppose a chroot would be enough to get something decent quite  
quickly.

I have always found it very hard to cross compile .
