hppa FTBFS does not look like something worth disabling the port for,
it appears that compiler version check is just broken. What needs to
be done for alpha? Does it FTBFS with gcc 4.1? Anybody can run a
build and make the log available? I'm willing to have a look at those.
It appears that paer is accessible, but escher (the only DD-accessible
alpha, AFAIK) is in lock down.
One RC issue was recently uncovered on sparc too: 2.6.18 does not boot
on rather popular SunBlade 100/150 machines (392078). Upstream is
aware of the problem and I'm going to work on it myself in the next
