Yes, JIT engine for Alpha processor was not upgraded to new stuff but
you can use interpreter engine.

I have made some work on exception handling for DEC OSF/1 but it's still
not working: trampoline code seems break libexc virtual_unwind.

The GNU/Linux Alpha JIT port is not upgraded.

If you have some knowledge on Alpha processor and Alpha calling
convention, could you help me to fix JIT Alpha ports ?
