I took the trouble of installing FreeBSD under qemu.  I think I
understand the problem:

sparc64-fbsd$ gcc -v
Using built-in specs.
Target: sparc64-undermydesk-freebsd
Configured with: FreeBSD/sparc64 system compiler
Thread model: posix
gcc version 4.2.1 20070831 patched [FreeBSD]

sparc64-fbsd$ as -v
GNU assembler version 2.17.50 [FreeBSD] 2007-07-03 (sparc64-unknown-freebsd) using BFD version 2.17.50 [FreeBSD] 2007-07-03

I've highlighted the problem with ^^^^.  Yes, the provided toolchain is
hopelessly outdated.

I do not intend to spend more time on implementing workarounds for
shortcomings of a 14 year toolchain on a dead platform.  Sorry.
