| 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.

Getting it working on Alphas would also be of benefit in the sense
that it gets the 64-bitness working again.  That gives one less thing
to worry about when porting to IA64, if/when that should happen.
