I think that I ran into this, and it had to do with an include missing
in an alpha-specific include file. I compared it to the i386 version,
and that did have the required include file.

Search the kernel source (in .h files) for "builtin_memset", and you'll
see that it's defined in one of those files. Now search for occurances
of that files being included, and you'll find that it's included in the
i386 branch but not the alpha branch.

At least, that's what I recall... I'm not near my alpha at the moment
(where I had fixed this), so I can't tell the exact details. Remind me
to look again on Monday or so if you still have problems.
