Both alpha and hppa still exist, they have just become ports. Neither ia64 nor
sparc exist anywhere. That's a difference.

To see what targets in Debian are currently supported, both as release architectures
and as ports, look at a random buildd page [1]. As you can see, neither "sparc"
nor "ia64" are nowhere to be found while "alpha", "hppa" and "sparc64" are
preset - every architecture that is grayed out is currently unofficial, thus
a ports architecture.
