If you are adventurous,
you might want to try the experimental files in:

it does contain a partial installer for sparc-linux,
cross-compiled on a x86_64-linux machine.

The results using qemu-sparc are not that bad,
considering the fact that no one is really actively 
testing or even maintaining this CPU target.

It would be glad to get feedback if it works for you,
for instance if you are able to generate a full native
installation from the 3.0.2 sources
using this cross-tar.gz file.
