What kind of patches are we dealing with?  One of us could probably easily
review them here and find a way to have the source patched in the event of
an Alpha build environment (I already am working on a similar solution for
binutils).  Being pretty familiar with the postgresql source and the Alpha
problems with it, feel free to mail me any patches that you want me to
test (right now, I run postgresql, but have no data being served by it, so
nothing's in danger).
