Compile problem on Alpha Linux

Dear Sirs,

To come to the problem at once:

I am running Linux version 2.0.35 RedHat 5.2 on a DEC Alpha 

1. When trying to install an .rpm with executables for the Alpha hfaxd
was not found.

2. Then I obtained a source rpm and compiled it. Again the hfaxd misses.
Make result follows the body of this email.

3. When I tried to build a new rpm containing executables (like the one
I earlier obtained for step 1 by using 'rpm -bb option on the rpm with
source) the resulting file is of roughly the same size as the others on
the net. (1.2M for hylafax-4.0pl1-2.alpha.rpm)

I drew the following conclusions:

4. All Alphas have the same problem as no rpm with executables is
containing hfaxd. How come nobody seems to miss the hfaxd as it is a
very essential part of the package?

5. The make of the package from source is great. Only on a fast system
like this Alpha it took me some time to even spot that I was having
compile errors as they shifted off the screen so fast. Shouldn't the
make script break on an error?

My questions:
Q1. Is this a know problem?
Q2. Am I wrong? Is the source code of HylaFAX wrong? Or is the compiler
Q3. What information can I provide you with to help?

BTW I have not been able to look into the HylaFAX site over the weekend;
it was unreachable.

PS the result of the make. I redirected the output so that only the
errors are shown.
