In the past (+/- March 2006) I offered to create sparc-solaris snapshots 
  based on fpc 2.1.1 and lazarus svn version. I only had a ssh account 
to that machine, so I couldn't do any testing.

Nobody stepped forward to do the testing, so I never actually made a 
package for it, just verified, that Lazarus could be built on it.
