...and a few others. Most likely, ARM, MIPS, and a few others should
notice this problem as well (haven't tested it on my Indy yet since it
still runs IRIX). The patch that I have only addresses Alpha, but I'm
sure that when the submitter pointed it out, a more thorough patch will be

IIRC, DP264 is the proper system type. I don't think you'll ever see it
specifically mentioned on the list, though, since those are family names,
not specific machine names. I'll see if I can work up a patch to the
Configure.help file that fills out the help list more, though. I've got
an extensive list of Alpha models and their family names already, so this
shouldn't be too hard.
Here's the patch:
