Subject: CIPE on DEC Alpha

Hi all, I'm new to the CIPE list.  I'm assuming it is ok to post in 
English, since most of the other posts are in English.

After a miserable time with FreeS/WAN to set up the first link in my 
replacement VPN, I decided to use CIPE, but ran into troubles.

Is anyone using CIPE on Alpha hardware?  I had troubles which I managed 
to fix:
1) Many warnings from gcc 3.1, I went instead to 2.96 for both kernel 
and CIPE
2) The crc32 code assumes unsigned long is 32 bits, which fails 
miserably on Alpha.  This should really be set using __u_int32_t or 
something similar.
3) A few calls to bind were missing the cast from sockaddr_in* to sockaddr*.

Has anyone else experienced problems in these areas?  I'd like to know 
if it's my build environment before I submit patches to Olaf.

Anyway, the link is working now, and gives me great performance, and is 
orders of magnitude simpler than FreeS/WAN.
