There's an updated patch (for 19.34b) which includes ELF support in

With that patch applied, 19.34b configures, builds, and runs just fine
as far as i can tell:

93 [bunnahabhain] rdate % file /usr/local/bin/emacs
/usr/local/bin/emacs: sticky ELF 64-bit LSB executable, Alpha, version 1

It even does the right stuff with all of the rpath specs, shared libs,
