Well, the current g++ on alpha sometimes has trouble with C++ code.
The xsidplay build fails with the following message:

c++ -DPACKAGE=\"xsidplay\" -DVERSION=\"1.5.4\" -DXSID_HAVE_NOTHROW=1 -DSTDC_HEADERS=1 -DHAVE_IOSTREAM_H=1 -DHAVE_IOMANIP_H=1 -DHAVE_ALGO_H=1 -DHAVE_VECTOR_H=1 -DHAVE_SYS_IOCTL_H=1 -DHAVE_LINUX_SOUNDCARD_H=1 -DHAVE_LINUX=1  -I. -I.  -I./audio -I./widgets  -I/usr/X11R6/include -I/usr/include/qt    -g -O2 -c moc_FilterDialogData.cpp
moc_FilterDialogData.cpp: In function `static class QMetaObject * FilterDialogData::staticMetaObject()':
moc_FilterDialogData.cpp:120: Internal compiler error in `gen_reload_inhi', at insn-emit.c:5550

There have already been bugs reported on similar problems,
so all I can do at the moment is patiently wait for a new
g++ version for such packages.

However, note that m68k and powerpc have even older versions of
xsidplay currently, maybe investigate those to see why the build
fails there? AFAIK those architectures have build daemons running
(alpha doesn't currently) and I believe the build logs are available
somewhere (I don't know where, however).
