When compiling something to assembly language (-S) with a cross compiler targeted at alpha-unknown-linux(-gnu)?, the .frame directive always contains a frame size of 0, even when the frame size is in fact greater than 0.

The same compiler version compiled natively on alpha-linux does produce correct output.

Unfortunately, I don't have the opportunity to try hosting the cross compiler on another platform.
configure --target=alpha-unknown-linux
gcc/xgcc -B gcc/ -S -O <some c file>
