I don't know too much about /dev/ports, I'd have to look into it more.
Some of the other FreeIPMI developers may know more already.  Maybe they
can chime in.

Did just #include <asm-sparc64/types.h> work for you?

For the time being, does your kernel come with the IPMI kernel driver?  

FreeIPMI 0.3.X also supports inband communication w/ the kernel driver.
So it would be another way to get the ipmi tools to work in-band for hte
time being.
