You can use the ISO image at 
to initially install Debian 8.

After successful installation, you need to add the debian-ports
repository to your /etc/apt/sources.list file, so that you will receive
regularly new updates. Add those entries to /etc/apt/sources.list:
  deb http://ftp.debian-ports.org/debian/ unstable main
  deb http://ftp.debian-ports.org/debian/ unreleased main

Could somebody with access to an Alpha build environment please checkout the wip-ports branch of https://anonscm.debian.org/git/users/jrtc27-guest/polyml.git <https://anonscm.debian.org/git/users/jrtc27-guest/polyml.git>and see if it builds? A full build log would also be useful.
