While planning the 2.0.2 release building, I was thinking about the

e.g. sf: http://sourceforge.net/project/showfiles.php?group_id=2174.
Further, it even seems that Sun doesn't thrust in it anymore but uses
AMD64. Since sparc is currently maintained by the core team it mainly
costs time which could be spent in other platforms. So I was thinking
about dropping sparc releases for now. If necessary, it can be quickly

Any comments?
