Is cross-compiling netbsd from solaris supported?

I've tried to build a snapshot from a solaris-2.8 box and get the

mcmahill@slashing 173 % ./ -D /export/home0/mcmahill/netbsd-build
-R /export/home0/mcmahill/netbsd-snapshot -a sparc -m sparc

also I was hoping to try and build an alpha snapshot perhaps with:

env CC=cc CFLAGS="-xchip=ultra -dalign -xcode=abs32 -xarch=v9" ./
-D /export/home0/mcmahill/netbsd-build -R
/export/home0/mcmahill/netbsd-snapshot -a alpha -m alpha
