Please be sure that you build and install libstand before building
a loader!  (or use buildworld, that should work)

FICL is now active on the Alpha, and actually seems to work.  The Alpha
problems have been solved - it was an alignment issue of the end of code.
Adding/removing code would make it fault.

I am not sure if the x86 loader will be affected by a mismatch, but I would
not like to bet on it.  Be safe and make sure it is not linked against
a stale libstand. :-)

  Modified files:
    sys/boot/alpha/common Makefile.common 
  Reactivate the FICL hooks to make it be compiled in, but also initialize
  FICL.  bootforth is now live on the Alpha!
  **BEWARE** - you *MUST* build and install a current libstand or you will
  most likely get zfree() panics at loader startup.
  We should now be able to set up the loader.conf stuff on the Alpha too.
