AlphaStation 500. I'll write it of as something silly and I'll try
a cross-build from an i386. Using this toolchain stuff to build
pkgsrc would really rock btw, as even "trivial" programs seem to take
forever to compile. teTeX is one of the more memorable experiences,
I might try mozilla someday :) Should give a good workout for the HP.
