the compaq-cc port cannot install currently, as it depends on the redhat linux beeing installed.  Unfortunately the current linux_base for redhat are all not available on alpha architecture.  (The Debian linux_base does not install due to mismatch of libc6 version.  With gentoo there seems to be a problem of missing or different libraries, so that compaq-cc won't compile properly.)

cd /usr/ports/lang/compaq-cc && make install
I really do not know!  Maybe there is still an old version of the redhat linux base for alpha, that could be reintegrated into ports?
