So, finding recently that I unexpectedly had several days of uninterrupted hacking time, I started hacking. SBCL on the Alpha is four days closer to being a reality than it was, uh, four days ago. The C bit builds, CMUCL builds the SBCL crosscompiler, the SBCL crosscompiler (running inside CMUCL) can build the final compiler, and it generates a core file of plausible size and shape. But then when I start it, it blows up at random in COLD-INIT

I just noticed though that I'd left :gencgc (the generational conservative gc, only works on x86) in the target features list, which can't exactly be helping. So, time to rebuild it all from scratch. Wheee.

As a matter of curiosity -does anyone care?
