Both should be defined. __alpha is defined by the DEC compiler, if I
remember right, so we should be able to catch that too. The patches that
were given to the egcs maintainer for Alpha define both __alpha and
__alpha__ so both should show and be caught. I personally prefer to use
__alpha since alot of our changes could apply to DEC Unix as well.
