$ make package
I then installed the stock xf86-video-sunffb-1.1.0.tar.gz from

did not find how to include the sbus bits for compilation properly.
Just mail whatever you've got to the package maintainer.
The issue now is that Xorg constantly consumes 100% CPU. Widgets in
WindowMaker and Gtk+ draw very slowly, I can see every blit appear
sequentially with steps of 0.5s. The pixbuf demo from gtk-demo is
running decently though.
As martin said - that's been fixed in xsrc. The relevant file is
drivers/sunffb/VISmoveimage.s, you can probably just copy it over
from xsrc and rebuild the sunffb driver.
