Got the latest released package to compile with the native 2.4.19 pcmcia kernel modules and all is well. Thanks!

Which was quite trivial to do.. alpha-linux uses reg8 as current pointer and gcc has to be told about this. Please add -ffixed-8 to the CFLAGS and the problem should disappear. Latest CVS snapshot does this with following patch:
+ +ifdef CONFIG_ALPHA +CFLAGS += -mno-fp-regs -ffixed-8 +endif +
