I edited Makefile in the pkgsrc/graphics/fxtv -added 'alpha' under support.
Then edited remote.c file in /../../work/fxtv../ -commented out
/machine/mouse #include,
and pkg compiles. However i have (on 1.6B)
no /dev/bktr0 dev or provision for it in /dev/MAKEDEV on my alpha.
Next off to add what i need in /dev/MAKEDEV file, anyone know where
major-minor # for  alpha  devices are located?
