Thanks for the responses! Consolidated replies below...

Yes, the modified section falls within the "else" of a 64-bit ifdef.

Yeah, that's just sloppy on my part. I didn't write those lines, just
copied them from an alternate atomicops.h that doesn't have the same

TBH, I wasn't thinking about this from the standpoint of introducing
the patch officially into the pkgsrc, just alerting SPARC users to the
possibility. If it were going to be added to the distro with
cross-platform compatibility in mind, I'd instead suggest the

Thanks, I'll take a look! Looks like it doesn't have a SPARC binary
package either, so hopefully I don't run into anything similar
