Alright I stripped my processor type, sorry.

The -fPIC -DPIC definitely made a difference. I've been running Gentoo
since January on this particular alpha but have yet (Xfree or Xorg) to
get X to run locally.  Always server core exit on run.
I was also getting lots of:

	Elf_RelocateEntry() Unsupported relocation type 10

Which googling pointed to PIC problems with the compilation.

Xorg -configure always worked okay.  Last problem I was having was xfs
giving a floating point exception on startup.

I modded my local ebuild file to allow -fPIC -DPIC from my CFLAGS to get
passed through.

My current mostly innocuous CFLAGS are:

CFLAGS="-mcpu=ev56 -O3 -pipe -fPIC -DPIC"

The build took 12 hours and I am still getting the ELF errors but it
looks as the X continues to run and doesn't server exit. (I'm not
actually at the console at the moment to see the X though).

BTW, this alpha server 800 with an add-on ATI RagePro3D+TV (Mach 64
derivative)

I disabled the onboard S3 VGA as it wasn't supported except as a VGA.
