Re: monotone: FTBFS on alpha, configure fails mysteriously

If you look carefully at the buildd log for this one, you see it went
off the rails a long time before that...

checking whether we are using the GNU C++ compiler... no
checking whether g++ accepts -g... no
checking dependency style of g++... none
checking for C++ compiler warning flags... unknown

^^ this looks like a completely nonfunctional C++ compiler.  Actually,
there are problems even earlier:

The following extra packages will be installed:
 cpp-2.95 g++-2.95 gcc-2.95 libboost-filesystem1.34.0 libboost-regex1.34.0
 libc6.1-dev libicu36 libicu36-dev libstdc++2.10-dev libstdc++2.10-glibc2.2
 linux-libc-dev zlib1g-dev

^^ g++ *2.95*?!  What on earth is it doing using that dinosaur?
Upstream doesn't support anything before 3.3, and would like to bump
that to 3.4.

I need advice from the alpha porters on what might be wrong here and
how to proceed.  debian-alpha cc:ed.
