Any production machine should have recent enough CPU stepping to be
fine (C0 or newer, IIRC).  If someone is trying to sell you a
prototype, they're probably doing something illegal and you don't want
to get that anyhow (AFAIK, all Itanium prototypes are property of
Intel and thus cannot be resold legally).
