"Alpha" is not listed as an architecture that the SRPM for Mozilla / RedHat 7.x
supports. However, I have been doing Alpha builds using those SRPMS for quite
some time and have had no problem. After applying this change, I built a
complete set of Mozilla RPMS for RedHat 7.2/Alpha and am using that build to
type in this bug.

(If anyone wants Alpha RPMs for the FTP site, let me know.)

They won't build with gcc 3.2 on the alpha, which is why it's not there.

I disagree with you on this this. 

The last supported RedHat release on Alpha is 7.2, which ships with GCC 2.96. 
As such, I don't think that Mozilla's issues with GCC 3.2 on Alpha have any 
bearing on the issue. (Especially since the bug specifically targets the RedHat 
7.x RPMS.)

Can you split the .spec file into two or do something similar to that so RedHat 
7.x users on Alpha can use your SRPMs?

I keep that spec file around for the most recent Red Hat Linux system. 
Unfortunately, I can't make everyone happy for all systems.

If you're going to download the src.rpm and rebuild it anyway it's not that hard
to add alpha to the ExclusiveArch: line.
