Yes, MySQL 3.22.26 should be stable on Alpha, if you have the latest
glibc libraries on it.
How much RAM do you have? If you compile 'sql_yacc.cc' with -O, you
should be able to compile it with very little ram!
If you have disk, its also trivial in Linux to temporary add a swap
partition on a file during compilation of MYSQL.
