[PATCH FOR REVIEW]: Support the alpha architecture

Basic change seems harmless to me, the _ARCH_ definition is a little  
concerning, do we need
that definition for all arch's or just alpha?
I hate to pollute this already overpopulated arch naming mess. :^(

How about:

# Alpha arch does not like "alpha" defined (potential general arch  
cleanup issue here)
ifneq ($(ARCH),alpha)
Just a suggestion. One of these days, the whole ARCH issue needs to be  
cleaned up, just not sure that will ever happen. :^(

Filed this bug for you.
