./sparc64-softmmu/qemu-system-sparc64 -hda disk0 -cdrom /misc/iso/Solaris/sol-nv-b127-sparc-dvd.iso -nographic -bios openbios-devel/obj-sparc64/openbios-builtin.elf -boot d

When I launch, I'm in the qemu source directory.  I've checked out the openbios-devel source to that directory and built the sparc64 version of OpenBIOS there.
