[RC5] AXP client slow on RC5

I stopped working on the OGR project a while ago, to completely devote my
cycles to RC5 (like in the good old days).
My question is rather simple: Is it normal for a DPW500au (Digital Alpha
Workstation at 500Mhz) to Benchmark for RC5 core #0 (axp bmeyer)
0.00:00:16.60 [806,546.70 keys/sec] ?
I supposed a 64 bit CPU would be better suited to crunch 64bit RC5
blocks... Is the clients code optimised for Linux-Alpha or just ported to
Linux-Alpha? What other reasons might cause this 'lack of performance'?
Furthermore: the Benchmark for OGR core #0 (GARSP 5.13) 0.00:00:16.39
[2,310,715.87 nodes/sec] seems a lot better. Compared to my Duron 800
running WinNT, it benchmarks 46% of the keys/sec. I think that's a more
acceptable rate... (for RC5 it's: 33% of the AMD 800)
Do Intel/AMD 500Mhz chips benchmark similarly or do they perform
Might this be OS-dependant? (I could get my alpha to run WinNT, but it
wouldn't be fun that way ;-þ)
