Nowadays, you can rent out all kinds of exotic hardware online.  
Googling for "sparc zone vps," I get two results, although the 
second one doesn't give much RAM for the developer plan:

If Per wants to use ldc and can't give you access to his 
company's machines, maybe he can rent out one of those zones and 
give you access and a bounty for a sparc port.  Alex already put 
in a fair amount of Solaris/x86 support into dmd and druntime.

Now if I could only find an ARM vps... ;)
