I haven't looked at it. What's the problem?

I know ocaml is working fine on ppc, and mostly OK on ppc64 (where
'mostly' means the compiler itself and most test programs seem to run,
although freetennis segfaults after startup. Which is why it isn't in
the build system yet). It looks like it ought to have Alpha support too.
