    I suppose that's because sparc64 doesn't properly define LDFLAGS_BLOB (nor
    did it define ARCHBLOBFLAGS, which is replaced by the former now). Look
    at arch/i386/Makefile::LDFLAGS_BLOB and adapt accordingly ;)

    Well, I wouldn't think there's any toolchain which doesn't support the
    current way when given the right flags, so that looks faster and cleaner
    to me.
