Done.  And here's a patch for removing the alpha architecture and
Tru64 UNIX (aka OSF/1) which runs on that architecture, per discussion
upthread.  Barring objections, I'll apply this next week.

On a related note, I think we should update the paragaraph in
installation.sgml that begins "In general, PostgreSQL can be expected
to work on these CPU architectures".  Any architecture that doesn't
have a buildfarm animal should be relegated to the second sentence,
which reads "Code support exists for ... but these architectures are
not known to have been tested recently."  Similarly, I think the
following paragraph should be revised so that only operating systems
for which we have current buildfarm support are considered fully
supported.  Others should be relegated to a sentence later in the
paragraph that says something like "code support exists but not tested
recently" or "expected to work but not tested regularly".
