Bug#650151: FTBFS on Alpha: Some tweaks needed

Source: iceweasel
Version: 8.0-3
Severity: Important
Justification: fails to build from source
User: debian-alpha@lists.debian.org
Usertags: alpha
X-Debbugs-CC: debian-alpha@lists.debian.org

Iceweasel FTBFS on Alpha. Build log is at:

The following tweaks are all that are needed to build a working iceweasel.

Please add the following to the patch

 #elif defined(__s390__)
 #define ARCH_CPU_S390 1
 #define ARCH_CPU_32_BITS 1
+#elif defined(__alpha__)
+#define ARCH_CPU_ALPHA 1
+#define ARCH_CPU_64_BITS 1
 #error Please add support for your architecture in build/build_config.h

There remains a bug in the linker (binutils) that is causing problems to
large C++ projects and to get a working iceweasel full optimisation
needs to be disabled.  Please add into debian/rules the following:

ifneq (,$(filter alpha,$(DEB_BUILD_ARCH)))
        CONFIGURE_FLAGS += --enable-optimize=-O1
