Unfortunately Hurd does not support Alpha yet. There was an attempt
to port gnumach to Alpha, which would go most of the way to porting
Hurd to that platform. But that project (hurd-alpha on sourceforge)
seems to be dead/stalled for quite some time.
Since you now have the hardware you might want to revive this port.
