The new release of XFree86, ie 3.2, is available; there's a server for the
S3 ViRGE chip included, which has been ported to the Alpha. Last I heard,
however, was that the released server did not work well, so unless the
problems have been fixed and a new binary generated, I'd not count on the
one that's available at (and some mirrors).

Harald, sorry if this is inaccurate...
