This alignment issues during compilation are the biggest problem in
packaging xorp for Debian.  It's very difficult to keep xorp in Debian
updated because of it.  A package is only candidate to be released on
the next Debian release if and only if can be built on all the
official architectures and without an updated package of xorp in
Debian will be more difficult to have it updated in Ubuntu.

I need solutions for this type of compile errors, so I can keep xorp
updated in Debian.
