I did it with my AlphaStation 500/500 containing a PowerStorm 4d20:
Built a todays -current kernel and booted it with 1.5.1 userland:

Seems to work! The 4d20 no longer panics the kernel and a simple vga
is detected:

  vga0 at pci0 dev 8 function 0: Digital Equipment TGA2 (rev. 0x22)
  wsdisplay0 at vga0: console (80x25, vt100 emulation)

-> dmesg output looks like without the enabled 'tga*' kernel option.

'XalphaNetBSD' complains about:

  unable to get frame buffer info: Inappropriate ioctl for device

Altogether: Is it what you have expected?
