To get the credits right: my contribution was limited to bugging
Eric---all the good work was done by Eric.

And in case Linus mail wasn't clear on this: yes, this does mean that
"make xconfig" now works on the Alpha too! It's certainly not
perfect, but it beats "make config" any time you want to change just
one or two options.

You'll need tcl/tk for this, but they should compile out of the box
with 1.3.38 (though you may wanna upgrade to the latest libc first,
due out sometime today).
