Oh- sorry- the two places in uvm_fault.c that have

#if defined(sparc) || defined(arm32) 

needed defined(alpha) added for compiling on the alpha- pg is
deemed 'may be used without being initialized'. I haven't
tried compiling elsewhere.  I'm still gcc version
for alpha.

It's a low pri issue- just saw it, the only question that I
needed really was whether egcs was now required (I might
have missed that announce)- Hey- I won't even make the
delta/fix if there's any question about it. Simple problem-
ask a simple question to a relatively low b/w email alias.
