BTW, It is worth mentioning that we recently uploaded version 1.6-1 to
Debian. This build failure does not happen only in the Sparc
architecture, it happens in all other architectures Debian supports.
The fuild build logs can be found in:

- Armel: https://buildd.debian.org/fetch.cgi?&pkg=xorp&ver=1.6-1&arch=armel&stamp=1267677892&file=log
- hppa: https://buildd.debian.org/fetch.cgi?&pkg=xorp&ver=1.6-1&arch=hppa&stamp=1266567644&file=log

- sparc: https://buildd.debian.org/fetch.cgi?&pkg=xorp&ver=1.6-1&arch=sparc&stamp=1266647187&file=log

For reference, we are following this in Debian as bug #540679 "FTBFS:
error: cast from 'uint8_t*' to 'ArpHeader*' increases required
alignment of target type", see
