Or is it still more complicated than that to get
anything other than x86 architectures to run? (Yes,

You may as well try it, but I think you'd be extraordinarily fortunate
if it actually worked.
As Cole said, it's unlikely that libvirt will be able to drive
qemu-system-sparc correctly so your best bet would be to use the
direct command line, ie:
qemu-system-sparc -M <something> -m <something> -hda /path/to/disk.img
If this doesn't work (and as I said I'd be surprised if it did) you
will need to contact the qemu upstream community to work out what's
