I am pretty sure that the "-32" option hasn't changed for aeons, so
there is nothing to break here. And, as I mentioned before, you are
already passing "-b elf32-sparc -m elf32_sparc" to ld, so adding "-32"
to the assembler would not hurt at all.

I can even ask one of Oracle's toolchain SPARC team members to confirm
my assessment. In fact, I will just do this now.
