As far as I understand - it is only JIT or AOT compilers that are arch 
dependant. The interpreter seems to be working
since the build process got so far. The parser fails to parse "Decimal" 
numbers that have letters "m" or "M" attached to
the end (like 0m). If I delete that "m" it happily continues. I did some 
modifications to alpha code in "arch" directory, so it
could be compiler by gcc 4.1 and pass some tests. As far as I understand 
the mono should work without JIT compiler...

The problem is that Fedora project started to integrate the Mono very 
much and it cause "a lot of trouble" to AlphaCore
project I am working on now.

Any hints what it is necessary to do port of Mono to Linux/Alpha are 
welcome, I will try to help (or find someone whoc could help).

Thank you,
