You're supposed to bootstrap NetBSD/sparc by using a binary distribution
(preferably the latest snapshot) of NetBSD/sparc. You can find it on most
(all?) NetBSD mirrors in arch/sparc. You can find installation instructions
Using that (i.e running NetBSD), you can compile the latest sources to
get to -current.
