I'm running sys-kernel/grsec-sources-2.4.27.2.0.1-r1. I don't know much
about the alpha-sources kernel, the  gentoo-sources kernel, or
alpha-specific features. I'm mainly concerned with
security. I was running vanilla-sources but a security advisory came out
a couple months ago where vanilla-sources was not patched as quickly as
grsec-sources, so I switched to that. 

If you are concerned with security you might want to consider upgrading.
2.4.27 had several security patches, I believe.
