That should work fine, though I'd recommend you take a look at
the latest sparc64 snapshot (pub/NetBSD/arch/sparc64/snapshot/...)
1.5.x was pretty much an 'experimental' release for sparc64, and
things have progressed a lot since then. I'm running a very happy
ultra1 under -current which was not really usable under 1.5.x.
