Ok, that's not a problem since this can be set up and saved in the
DEC Alpha's SRM monitor. However, I seem to recall that the '-a'
option was the `ask' option for kernels on th i386 that do interactive
configuration.  (Or was that just FreeBSD?) Shouldn't we change
the i386 interactive configuration to, say, `-i' for consistency
across the ports?
