So, if I patch llvm-gcc with MirBSD/sparc rules in gcc/config.gcc
and gcc/config/sparc/ like I did with i386, chances are it would
work (in a limited fashion)? Or is sparc support in llvm specific
to Solaris?

Sometimes they [people] care too much: pretty printers [and syntax highligh-
ting, d.A.] mechanically produce pretty output that accentuates irrelevant
detail in the program, which is as sensible as putting all the prepositions
in English text in bold font.	-- Rob Pike in "Notes on Programming in C"
