	The patch is attached, just adds a line to the resultmap file as
the geometry-solaris-precision.out file matched the Linux/Alpha output.
Also, the geometry-cygwin-precision.out is an exact match to the
geometry-solaris-precision.out file if anyone is interested in reducing
the number of geometry files. :)
	Now, all regression tests are passing (snapshot from 2000/7/1),
and this is on a build of pgsql straight out of the box. Just untarred,
configure (w/linux_alpha template), and a make. So, it looks like we have
finally reached out-of-the-box compatiblity for Linux/Alpha. :) Though I
have heard that some of the optional interfaces, ODBC in particular, are
not compiling on the Linux/Alpha. I guess one's work is never done...

	PS. The 'make runcheck' for the regression tests is quite a nice
way of testing a pgsql build without affecting a current pgsql install.
One gripe, it calls 'gmake' to do the temporary install, which does not
exists, at least under Debian 2.1 Linux, as GNU make is the only make
installed. Maybe, test for gmake, if it not found, just use make, or use
make outright on linux machines (detected from arch configurations). Just
a suggestion.

	PPS. The snapshots still have a dirty config.cache and
config.status file included with them, requiring a make distclean
immediately after untar.
