Short Description
initdb on Alpha dies with spinlock errors

Long Description
Compiled PostgreSQL 7.0.2 on my 21164 Alpha running SuSE 6.4 AXP.  Compiled fine, but when trying to run initdb I recieve the following output:
This database system will be initialized with username "postgres".
This user will own all the data files and must also own the server process.

Creating database system directory /home/postgres/data
Creating database system directory /home/postgres/data/base
Creating database XLOG directory /home/postgres/data/pg_xlog
Creating template database in /home/postgres/data/base/template1
[ED: 30 second pause here]
FATAL: s_lock(202f29b0) at spin.c:116, stuck spinlock. Aborting.

FATAL: s_lock(202f29b0) at spin.c:116, stuck spinlock. Aborting.

initdb failed.
Removing /home/postgres/data.
Removing temp file /tmp/initdb.13925.

Compiled using egcs-1.1.2, rest is SuSE 6.4 stock.  Running on 2.4.0-test11-ac4.  Any ideas?
