I don't recall there ever being one for TC alphas.  I did some work on
this a couple of weeks ago, after coming to the conclusion that I needed a
64-bit NetBSD compilation platform, and that the 3000/300s we're using as

But, I gave up because I couldn't figure out how to mux the wscons
keyboard output to be able to open it from the X server, and lack of time
to really get into the wscons code to find out.  (OTOH I'd already
translated the FBIO* stuff to WSDISPLAYIO* and modified the X server to
something that might work someday, if I can open the keyboard.)

If someone can show me how to get the wscons muxing business done, I may
be able to spend some time working on this....
