Yep, SPARC (32 and 64 bit) has been supported in Debian for a while. I
think SPARC support was among the patches that went into pvm 3.4.3 as well,
but due to some security issues with the /tmp/pvm.* rendevous sockets and
logs (upstream made a different patch to the same problem, and I'm pretty
convinced 3.4.3 only changes the hole from wide-open to a race) I haven't
yet bumped the .debs to the latest PVM.
pvm (3.4.2-4) frozen unstable; urgency=high
* Release manager: changes required to build on SPARC and ARM
* Added flags for sys_errlist to LINUXSPARC (closes: #59574)
* Added sparc64 in addition to sparc for LINUXSPARC
* note to self: will need to create LINUXSPARC64 for woody once the new
* build environment exists.
* Added LINUXARM.

pvm (3.4.0-5) unstable; urgency=high
* Quick non-backward-compatible fix to unsafe /tmp log and daemon
files. Backward-compatible fixes soon - don't distribute staticly
linked binaries from this version for compatibility reasons.
