I don't have an Alpha, and I don't have access to one running 4.X (only
4.X is affected).

I believe the problem is that _LP64 is not defined on 4.X Alpha.  This
should build just fine on 5.X and higher.  I think a better fix might be
to add -D_LP64 to CPPFLAGS for Alpha, but I have no way to test that.

In any event, I think I'll keep gnomevfs2 without howl support on Alpha
for now, try to get the 4.11 tag slipped, then include the _LP64 hack in
the howl 0.9.8 update, and get the maintainer's take on it.
