Dumps made with dump-0.4b11 on Alpha are not readable on x86.  This issue
is resolved in the most recent version, which at this time is dump-0.4b13.

In conversations with the maintainer, Stelian Pop <pop@cybercable.fr>, it
appears the issue is with time_t and its use in the dump header.

Yes, time_t issues on alpha have broken cpio and rpm to name but two.

I've just compiled dump-0.4b13-1 in Raw Hide.
