hmm there are still some operating systems that "officially" support the
alpha architecture which will likely result in problems for their ports.
One example is OpenBSD both the current version (5.3) as well as the
upcoming release do fully support alpha and have binary packages and
source "ports" for postgresql and afaik they have no intention to stop
supporting that plattform.

seems like an improvement to me.
