OK.  So there is machdep stuff for the i386, and something odd for
bebox (I have looked at the code a little bit), but alpha and prep
both work w/o any tweaking.  Is it reasonable to error a compile
off with

	"platform not supported by this driver, yet"

when the fix may just be to add "&& !defined(newport)" to the #if?

Yes.  Thank you for unifying them!  :-)
