People have been working on the Sparc backend recently.
Sometimes these older backends are also good examples of how to code
something in a new port.
I based the Mips delay slot optimization on that in the Sparc port.
I don't know about the alpha. That machine is fairly dead as far as I know.
Sparc is not dead. Don't delete that.
