I don't think this will be possible.  sparc has no unified vga or vesa layer
in it's framebuffer drives.  

On an sbus framebuffer, DirectFB can't detect anything usable at all.
On the ATI Mach64 based framebuffers, there is one modeline that is usable
(640x480), but it's severely tinted green.

The package installs fine, but it doesn't seem this will work.  If you have
any more info about DirectFB on sparcs, let me know :)
