A segmentation fault usually indicates an attempt to access an invalid
memory location.  I would guess that one of the arguments to the utdec
routine is invalid.  One possibility is that the "PTR unit" argument
wasn't set by a call to the utmake() routine.  A more likely possibility
is that the primitive data type defined by the PTR macro isn't capacious
enough to hold a pointer.

The macro PTR is defined in the file lib/udunits.inc, which is installed
in the include/ installation-directory.  On a Dec Alpha, it should be
defined as an "unsigned long".  Verify that it is.

The UDUNITS package is known to work on Dec Alphas.
