Degree of difficulty is likely to be less than a starting completely
non-existent port (eg. IA64), but still significant. The 64-bitness is
likely to be more of an issue than the Alpha-specific stuff, though.
If there's sufficient demand for a port I'll help out; I did have an
account on the Compaq testdrive machines at one point (they have
Alpha/Linux and Alpha/*BSD machines) which has probably expired now, but
it's a good place to get some free Alpha cycles.
