  Can gcc's optimizer be told to do things in a 64-bit clean way?  IMO
that would be very useful in a cross-compilation environment.  With so
many of us NetBSD'ers running multiple platforms (I'm running five)
the ability to do fully-clean cross compilation would be very nice.

  On a different note, is anyone working on AlphaServer 1000 support?
They're coming down in price, and I've been told the 21164/300 cpu
boards will work in the older 21064/233 machines, even the non-A
