Something is very wrong with the build system if that change alters the
behaviour of an Alpha->ARM cross compiler. Why isn't it using the
standard configure tests to set the auto-host file up?
auto-host.h, as its name implies, is supposed to describe the properties
of the *host* that the compiler is running on. It can't be right on an
alpha to define off_t as a 32-bit type there...
Without a simplified test case there isn't much I can look into. Sadly my
only alpha gave up the ghost a few months back when a lightning storm
knocked out its power-supply (it was ancient anyway). So I'm not sure if
I can do much even with a test case.
