Future of FreeBSD on Alpha is death, but you are missing the signs of times:

- LLVM is about providing a better compiler infrastructure under a BSD-like license. They support FreeBSD and have an Alpha backend.

- The latest versions of GCC are under the GPLv3, which is being avoided by FreeBSD and other projects, at least for the immediate future.

FreeBSD-Alpha bugs may not be specific to FreeBSD, but of course if no one cares to report problems they won't get fixed and eventually they will drop support too.

FWIW, more info on LLVM specific to FreeBSD:
