Bug#655940: Please enable Alpha as allowable arch on petsc
petsc built in the past on Alpha, I believe, but Alpha has very recently
been removed from the architecture list for building petsc. I have
verified that the current version, 3.2.dfsg-2, does in fact build to
completion on Alpha (but did not tried to install and run it). I was
wondering what the reason was for the removal of Alpha and whether Alpha
can be added back to the architecture build list?
