Agreed, but it's the projects responsibility to take the tierness and
the intend to support multiple platforms serious and not to chicken out
at the first signs of complications or hurdles. We labeled sparc64 as
a tier 1 platform and we better deal with the consequences.

As for alpha, we don't even seem to be able to degrade it to tier 2
without losing face. kris@ has already stopped package builds for it
for his own sake.

Wake up, people. This is quickly becoming a joke...
