i successfully built -current for sparc with yesterdays' code; there are 
two iso images (one with X, one without) for download here:

those are built with -O4; i'm just building a supersparc-optimized 
release, may be online this evening.

building macppc with the same code fails in ofwboot, tho (PR already filed).
