In my first reply, I said "yes we do".

I learned a few minutes later that "ipfilter" was broken on Alpha (which has
64bit longs and pointers) in 1.3.2.

It's fixed in both -current and the 1.3.x branch, so you have two options:

a) if you like experimental code, you can use the recent -current snapshot
<ross> The snapshots are good, as long as you don't have a TGA and 
<ross> want an X server.

b) you can wait for 1.3.3.
