No such warnings on amd64.  I think they only show up on architectures
that require strict alignment, and amd64 doesn't.

FWIW, building firefox on OpenBSD/alpha and /sparc64 produces lots
of these warnings, but after all the pointer casting games are done,
the actual accesses still come out properly aligned and firefox
