The Faddeev-Yakubovsky equations for the α particle are solved. Accurate results are obtained for several modern nucleon-nucleon [Formula Presented] interaction models, which include charge-symmetry breaking effects in the [Formula Presented] force, nucleon mass dependences as well as the Coulomb interaction. These models are augmented by three-nucleon forces of different types and adjusted to the [Formula Presented] binding energy. Our results are close to the experimental binding energy with a slight overbinding. Thus there is only little room left for the contribution of possible [Formula Presented] interactions to the α-particle binding energy. We also discuss model dependences of the binding energies and the wave functions.
