This both are 32bit kernels. You need to compile them with a sparc toolchain,
not a sparc64 one. Try to derive your config from GENERIC32 but add the thinks
GENERIC does (before it includes GENERIC32).

If you realy want a 32bit kernel, you can cross-compile it from some other
machine (but with 1.6.1 not from a sparc64 one, unless it's already running
a 32bit kernel and sparc userland - kinda chicken & egg problem).

Easiest way to get a 32bit kernel setup on a new machine is to just install
NetBSD/sparc and use the SUN4U kernel.
