[bug-gv] Problem with gv-3.5.8/gv-3.6.1 on DEC alpha platforms

Subject: [bug-gv] Problem with gv-3.5.8/gv-3.6.1 on DEC alpha platforms

I am trying to build and use the gv application. 
I buit and installed the ghostscript-8.50 package and installed the
ghostscript-fonts-std-8.11 packes without any problems.
I built and installed the Xaw3d-1.5E X library without a problem.

The gv-3.5.8 package builds without problems; however, when I try to read 
.ps files, I receive the following error which terminates the program

X Error of failed request:  BadValue (integer parameter out of range for 
  Major opcode of failed request:  61 (X_ClearArea)
  Value in failed request:  0xfffffffc
  Serial number of failed request:  8153
  Current serial number in output stream:  8208

When I try to read .eps files, no problem occurs.

The gv-3.6.1 package doesn't build. The './configure --with-x' part performs
as normal; but the 'make' fails in ./src/main.c with

static struct option const GNU_longOptions[] =
    {"center", no_argument, NULL, CENTER_ARG},
      {NULL, 0, NULL, 0}

cc: Error: main.c, line 180: In the initializer for GNU_longOptions, an array's
element type is incomplete, which precludes its initialization. (incompelinit)
    {"center", no_argument, NULL, CENTER_ARG},
*** Exit 1

Also the definition of the getopt_long function and its supporting modules
seems to be missing. I obtained the gv-3.5.8 and gv-3.6.1 distributions from
the ftp.gnu.org site.

The platforms that I am trying to build and use gv-3.5.8/gv-3.6.1 on are
DEC alpha platforms running Digital Unix version 4.0F in one case and 
Tru64unix version 5.1B-2 in the other. 

Are the above situations known problems, and if so, are there any fixes? 
Is either gv-3.5.8 or gv-3.6.1 known to work on DEC alpha systems?

Thanks for your assistance
