That someone was me. The 32-bit gcc was for the old 32-bit kernel. You
*MIGHT* be able to generate 64-bit code using gcc in cross-compilation
mode, but (a) I won't guarantee the correctness, and (b) you'd still have
the problem of 64-bit libraries. Generating 32-bit libraries from source
*and* validating their correctness is not a trivial task. Then, of course,
you have to make sure all of your binutils can support 32-bit Alpha code.
It probably could be done, but the return on invested effort is so small
*I* don't want to do it...
