My bad. Should be at 


in few minutes (when it's synched up).

I was so thinking not to make it 'polluted with something that should
not be there' for first version, so i left out even some basic stuff.

libgcc.sparc64 isn't what is hurting anyone :) It's the libgcj.sparc64
which wan't half of the known universe with it.

I did put up the libstd++.sparc64 there too.

It more like it needs so much 64bit libs to build the gcj, but the very
same thing aplies for ppc64. ppc64 is a bit more polished on this
codebase as it's officially supported arch.
