OSF1 [hostname] V5.1 2650 alpha
Running bootstrap using the prebuilt GCC Alpha binaries (from leads to an odd failure upon running bootstrap.  Following the included README.OSF1, I run the command:

# env CC=/usr/local/gcc4/bin/gcc CFLAGS=-O2 ./bootstrap --compiler gcc

After doing some work, I eventually end up with:

You can now run

        sh ./

to produce a fully functional bmake.

On Tru64, enter the pkgsrc bootstrap directory and run:

env CC=/usr/local/gcc4/bin/gcc CFLAGS=-O2 ./bootstrap --compiler gcc

Hi - this is an old PR (apologies). Are you in a position to test pkgsrc
on Tru64 anymore? If so would you be prepared to try with the latest
pkgsrc sources please? Kind regards, Chris

Asked for feedback

No feedback available from the originator. It would appear that Tru64
pkgsrc is not currently working, but without a test platform it will be
difficult to fix. Moving this to suspended.

"suspended" is for waiting for the world to change; bugs like this are
"stuck", for which there isn't a gnats state but I keep a list.

I don't have time unfortunately to field this or a Tru64 system.
We should make a decision about Tru64 support, dedicate someone to it and
get these fixed (or remove support).
