alpha-dec-osf3 bootstrapped quite cleanly today. Using the right
config.h makes a big difference ;) It isn't working yet though.

I had to comment out/hack various decls in the rts on the alpha,
which let the compile go through. The GHC that got built seems to
loop when invoked. Probably an MBlock thing, I haven't looked
into it yet.

Anyway, I assume Ian was talking about the bootstrapped GHC on
the target rejecting -mieee when being used to compile a full
GHC. I didn't get that far, but I had no problems with -mieee on
the host, or with .hc file-booting gcc.
