Well, every joke/sarcasm contains a grain of truth :-)
Have a look at the Linux Ultra FAQ, question 1.5:
5. Is everything 64-bit on sparc64, and can I compile 64-bit applications ?
The kernel and kernel modules are 64-bit on sparc64, userland is still 32-bit, and in fact the same as on sparc32. The conversion between native 32- and 64-bit function calls is being done via the kernel. Allthough you can compile a kernel with egcs64, you can't really use this compiler for building 64-bit userland binaries. See also "Why can't I compile certain software on my sparc64 ?" in Section 9.
