Hmm, my list (available via http://auric.debian.org/~paul/alpha/diff/ )
shows about 280 out of date packages in main. Of course, that's
binary packages, not source packages (which is estimated at 116,
including packages already uploaded but not yet installed).
There are also 85 source packages not yet built for alpha at all in
main, but that's probably for a large part down to arch non-alpha.
My concern was raised by the fact that my list has steadily grown in
length from about 490 lines a month ago, to over 800 the last couple

I have a nifty little wrapper for c++ which first exec'ed the real
binary as-is, and if that exited with exit status != 0, exec'ed it again
with -O0. Works pretty well :-)

Hmm, OK... It's just that I saw my list getting longer and longer,
whereas it was getting shorter and shorter when we were still building
by hand. I'll root through it and at least filter out the non-alpha
stuff that's new since I last did that.
