I'll see what I can do, but not necessarily this evening. My SPARC 
assembler is about as strong as hospital tea.

The "good" news is that this might be SPARC-specific- I've just got 
0.9.25 compiled and apparently running on an ARM (little-endian) system, 
again based on Debian "Etch". However I can't do much real work on this 
platform- compilation on the hardware available is somewhat sluggish and 
while I've got some higher-spec boards (or could cross-compile) it all 
takes time which is in short supply.

I'd like to get a big-endian ARM system running as well but I can't 
promise this in finite time. Is anybody else currently testing Lazarus 
on a big-endian system?
