 Finally, alpine is available again to MP users; thanks Larry!

 Re: [133173], considering I am new to MP, and I mean no disrespect, could
 you explain why transposing negative variants into positive ones is
 helpful here?

 From a maintainer's perspective, feels like the changes introduce
 byzantine rules.  At first, I thought it was simply double negatives to
 positive, but after hours of scratching my head, it seems more like triple
 negatives to keep the same build behavior?  I am losing count, is it
 quadruple negatives?  Overall, seems unnecessary and obfuscating.
