some of you might know that LFS works fine with sparc64.
I've been successfully working with LFS on a root partition on i386,
an i've tried to do the same on sparc64.
Whereas i386 can really boot from LFS (bootstrap code), i've did some
tricks to get it working on sparc64.
I've created a small ffsv1 partition where the netbsd kernel and ofwboot relies
and a big LFS partition. Then I compiled a custom kernel that dumps
root on the LFS partition.
This works fine.
