Hi all,

I read the docs for submitting a bug for perl on
I cannot even get perl 5.8.3 to build on SPARC Solaris 2.8,as
miniperl core dumps with a SIGBUS.

The issue at hand is unlaigned access that I cannot seem to
track down.  I know they are from dereferencing a pointer to
a variable whose natural alignment (say 8 bytes) when that
pointer is poting to an address aligned on 4 bytes (but not
8 bytes).

I am using the Forte Developer 7.0 C compiler

    cc: Forte Developer 7 C 5.4 2002/03/09

with the -misalign flag to help prevent SIGBUS on an unaligned
access, but miniperl still cores.  :-(

Any ideas as to what I should be looking at?
