Yes.  This is what we were using last time we needed an alpha
simulator too.  Just be forwarned that llvm-gcc 4.2 has not been
tested on alpha, and there isn't currently a nightly tester running,
so I don't know how much bitrot has happened to the backend (I have
the machines to start a nightly tester, it just hasn't happened yet).
