There is one for alphaOSF1 at
ftp://ftp.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/blast/executables/blast.alphaOSF1.tar.Z

About three years ago I used the DEC Alpha binary just
fine under Linux Alpha (which really surprised me, BTW).
The only thing was that it wouldn't run seg because
the system call wanted 'sh' to be in /usr/bin instead
of /bin, or vice versa.

The solution was to make a symlink between those two
spots.
