Something is terribly wrong with either your system tools or
this ".config" you are using.

If you cannot simply do:

cp arch/sparc64/defconfig .config
make oldconfig; make dep; make clean; make vmlinux; make modules

Then something is truly screwed on your machine. Watch
for other errors in the make logs if it fails. I have a
strange feeling that one of the make sub-shells died on
you or something.
