I hope it's 64, here is my mk.conf:
CC= gcc -m64
LD= ld --oformat=elf64-sparc

if I do 'boot kadb -d' and after prompt '/bsd/netbsd'
then I get
Size: 2120986+281256 Bytes
/bsd/netbsd loaded - 0x29e000 bytes used
I tried to check and to start it after that by everything I tried
led me into firmware prompt. I've got to learn some adb/kadb stuff.

I think it may destroy my solaris. What do you think?
I saw the guy was able to netboot, so I'm trying to built ofwboot for
currently I lack crt0.o what kind of surprise me.
Should standalone program have crt0? Is my environment screwd?
