For 4.0 revision 564, and 4.0A and 4.0B, Emacs 20 seems to work
with no special configuration options.
Note that the X11 libraries on GNU/Linux systems
for the Alpha are said to have bugs that prevent Emacs from working with X
(as of November 1995).

To work around the problem, add those definitions by hand.
It is possible that this problem happens only with X11R6
or that newer system versions have fixed it.

To build a 64-bit Emacs (including large file support) on a Solaris
system which supports 64-bit executables, use the Sun compiler,
configuring something like this (see the cc documentation for
information on 64-bit compilation):
env CC="cc -xarch=v9" ./configure --without-gcc
As of version 2.95, GCC doesn't support the 64-bit ABI properly, but
later releases may.
Emacs 20.5 and later work on SPARC GNU/Linux with the 32-bit ABI.
As of release 2.95, GCC doesn't work properly with the 64-bit ABI
(applicable on UltraSPARC), but that isn't the default mode.
Emacs 20.3 fails to build on Solaris 2.5 if you use GCC 2.7.2.3.
Installing GCC 2.8 fixes the problem.
