It currently won't.

Unless somebody else does the work, it's not likely to in the future,
either.  I don't have an EB64+, and it's unlikely that i'll be
obtaining one.

Making NetBSD/Alpha run on the EB64+ shouldn't be too hard, however.
Unless i'm mistaken, there are docs on the EB64+ on my Alpha doc page
(  If that's not
enough, i can probably get more info on them easily enough.  I
specifically designed the PCI interfaces in NetBSD/Alpha with an eye
towards flexibility.  Most things call through machine-specific
function pointers.
