#17 Please enable build on alpha plattform

Alain JJ

Many tv-applications, like xawtv, tvtime, aletv and
others work fine on the alpha plattform. Unfortunately,
your configure script prevents building on the alpha
plattform (I used the debian directory for trials).

I could not find any notice in the documentation about
i386 specific code, so if this is indeed not the case,
then you might issue a warning, but allow compilation
(attempts) nevertheless.

checking for strdup... yes
checking for strerror... yes
checking for gcc version... 3.3.2
checking for host architecture... UNKNOWN
checking CPU vendor... (:EV56:)
checking CPU type...
configure: WARNING: The architecture of your CPU
(UNKNOWN) is not supported by this configure script
configure: WARNING: It seems nobody has ported
xawdecode to your OS or CPU type
configure: error: unsupported architecture UNKNOWN
make: *** [configure-stamp] Fehler 1

Btw. Vendor would be Samsung (or, more generically,
DEC/Compaq/HP) and the type would be ev56/21164a.

A good starting point for CPU detection is the
configure script of mplayer, which also builds and runs
fine on alpha.
