Compilation of cups on my alpha (1.6ZK) is failing in an odd (to me) way.

Compiling util.c...

It actually stays there, not wedging the machine, but not going 
further until ctrl-c'ing out:
^Cgmake[1]: *** [] Interrupt
gmake: *** [all] Interrupt

When on console, the last line of the hang was "sys/emul" so it would 
seem that it thinks that it's supposed to be using a linux 
compatibility mode? I installed
the 1.6.2 binary package after trying it a few times (make clean 
between tries).

Any ideas?
