Hm, I'm not sure about pkgsrc gcc, but I have used my own GCC kits (4.4.x and 
4.5.x so far) to build software on (x86) Solaris Nevada and Illumos systems, 
and --abi=64 was the only thing needed to yield healthy 64bit packages. Noted I 
wouldn't know about the situation on older versions of Solaris and/or Sparc.
