I really need an answer to this question...

I am putting gentoo on a SunBlade 100, what CHOST should I use, I think it should be

sparc-sun4u-linux-gnu

I am getting some compiling errors

is there anything wrong with putting it to sparc64?

The sparc install docs really need to be updated...

The CHOST should be set to:
CHOST="sparc-unknown-linux-gnu"
as mentioned in the documentation. Other options may not work and/or make your system unusable.

The documentation is in the process of being updated. Also, many if not most compiler errors can be traced back to aggressive compiler options. Granted, Gentoo's advantage is the custom optimizations and compilations. However, if you run into problems, the first response should be to check your make.conf and tune down the compiler options and check your USE flags.

Wow, I was compiling everything for sparc64, and the only things I had trouble with were gcc and glibc.

That means that it wouldn't take that much work for the admins to get userland sparc64 rolling :), but I suspect they are busy with other things at the moment, oh whell, here's hoping.

if you gcc can't produce 64-code and your glibc isn't 64-bit, I don't think you userland progs are 64-bit, see some of my other posts about 64-bit userland,
