If you are talking about T1000/T2000/T5120, unfortunately, support was
never completed.  FreeBSD termed this the "sun4v" architecture as vs.
the "sparc64" architecture which spans the T105-v215 era servers.

The sparc64 support is mature.  I am working on bring the package building
back up to snuff after it had been neglected for a while.
