   Yes, it is 21264, ev6.

   It gives no message or warning whatsoever, relevant excerpt is
   pasted here:

     This file contains any messages produced by compilers while
     running configure, to aid debugging if configure makes a mistake.

     configure:592: checking host system type
     configure:813: checking for mawk

>  If it says "failed to recognized ev67", try ./configure --host=alpha.
   I will try that.

   Yes, that's another possibility. Thank you very much.
