On the list of platforms, Alpha is listed as an unsupported platform. I'm not sure about 21.3, but I definately know that 21.2.3 works on Alpha running Tru64 V5.1B (with some open source libs - which are available at HP).

Libraries which are open source may or may not be free software; also,
even if they are free software, their licenses may or may not be
compatible with the GPL.  Could you please show me the precise
licenses of the necessary libraries?  (The names would be useful too.)
Once I get that info, I can record the appropriate info about this

This is an excellent question. I has been a while since I did configured my Alpha box, so I'm not 100% sure I rememeber everything on there. I do remember checking out the open source software distribution that was put out with the V5.1B release, so I'm not quite sure how much I had to install to get emacs to compile. I'll look into it and get back to you.

I am thinking about downloading the latest and trying it out on Tru64.

Do you mean Emacs 21.3, or the current development version?
It would be useful to test either one, or both of them separately.

I'll try 21.3 first.
