i guess you are really testing the compilers for all architectures
then :-( you broke building the kernel on a sparc for about half a
year before reverting to gcc 3.2 as the default, now you are fucking
up the alpha build (and you don't even bother to test it).

if you go to http://db.debian.org/machines.cgi you'll find a list of
all the machines available to debian developers. escher.debian.org,
faure.debian.org, lully.debian.org are all alpha machines so it looks
like you _do_ have an alpha available.

myabe in the future you should test the compiler on those machines as
well before inflicting it on everybody else (not everybody uses i386).
