SPARC on Linux x86 via qemu-system-sparc

Supposedly RHEL 5.5 (courtesy of EPEL) has a hypervisor that emulates a SPARC CPU. When I tried it with Solaris 11, I got the following error message:

Unable to complete install: 'internal error Process exited while reading console log output: Supported machines are:
SS-5 Sun4m platform, SPARCstation 5 (default)
SS-10 Sun4m platform, SPARCstation 10
SS-600MP Sun4m platform, SPARCserver 600MP
SS-20 Sun4m platform, SPARCstation 20
SS-2 Sun4c platform, SPARCstation 2
Voyager Sun4m platform, SPARCstation Voyager
LX Sun4m platform, SPARCstation LX
SS-4 Sun4m platform, SPARCstation 4
SPARCClassic Sun4m platform, SPARCClassic
SPARCbook Sun4m platform, SPARCbook
SS-1000 Sun4d platform, SPARCserver 1000
SS-2000 Sun4d platform, SPARCcenter 2000

With this in mind, has anyone here had any success installing S11 SPARC with a Qemu hypervisor on an x86 system?
