OK, so we're going to standardize on __alpha__ to recognize that
platform?  OK by me, unless the Alpha users know a reason not to.

But the above doesn't belong in Makefile.alpha does it?  I'd have
thought include/port/alpha.h, since __alpha__ is being looked for
by C code not makefiles.

BTW, a quick glimpse shows no occurrences of __alpha except in
contrib/int8/int8.c, which is presumably unmaintained dead code now
that int8 is in the mainstream.  Shouldn't we delete contrib/int8
entirely?
