DEC/Compaq EV6 processor not recognized by 2.2.1's configure script

I'm attempting to install INN 2.2.1 on a Compaq XP1000 running Tru64unix
4.0F with jumbo patch kit 3 installed.  When running configure I get the
following regarding my platform hardware:

newnews%root# ./configure --with-perl
creating cache ./config.cache
checking host system type... Invalid configuration
`alphaev6-dec-osf4.0f': machine `alphaev6-dec' not recognized

checking for ranlib... ranlib
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... cc
checking whether the C compiler (cc  ) works... yes
checking whether the C compiler (cc  ) is a cross-compiler... no
checking whether we are using GNU C... no
checking for non-GNU ld... /usr/bin/ld
checking if the linker (/usr/bin/ld) is GNU ld... no
checking for BSD-compatible nm... /usr/ucb/nm
checking whether ln -s works... yes
ltconfig: you must specify a host type if you use `--no-verify'
Try `ltconfig --help' for more information.
configure: error: libtool configure failed

What needs to happen so that configure will recognize my hardware?  Is
it a simple matter of updating a text file to include "alphaev6-dec" or
is it way more complicated?

config.guess does include a case statement that references alphaev6 with
a value of "16" near the top of the script.  Any info would be
appreciated.  TIA.
