System: FreeBSD libertas.emma.line.org 4.10-BETA FreeBSD 4.10-BETA #102: Thu Apr 22 10:36:12 CEST 2004
This patch adds --enable-nommap to CONFIGURE_ARGS when compiled on the Alpha
platform, see the comment inside the patch for details.

The bug appears to cause self-test failures in dependent applications, for
instance, ports/mail/bogofilter-qdbm.

Port maintainer (fuyuki at nigredo.org) is cc'd.

Please, if possible, arrange for this patch to make it into FreeBSD 4.10.
