Maybe not a few days, but linux sparc should be the easiest port
possible since both the os-specific code (in hotspot/src/os/linux)
and the cpu-specific code (in hotspot/src/cpu/sparc) already exist,
so all you need to create is the hotspot/src/os_cpu/linux_sparc.
If I were doing it I'd use the templater mentioned in the guide
Dalibor linked to create just that directory and then start filling
in the blanks...
