No multilib on Alpha

Hello all, This section of the handbook mentions a "multilib" installation option, when no such option exists; Alpha is a pure 64-bit architecture, 32-bit legacy code never existed (I mean, unless you count a VESTed VAX app).

This part of the Handbook is shared among all arches. It really should have a note about what it applies to in the opening. I added something small but can be expanded if needed --Grknight (talk) 13:51, 1 August 2022 (UTC)
