Or perhaps we could/should use some #ifdef stuff? I see now there is some DO_ALIGN stuff in x86.S but I can't say I understand it. Does it depend on defines in arch.h? OSX does not have it's own. OK, using #ifdef __APPLE__ works fine - but can I assume that test will always do the right thing? It's better leaving it at 1<<15 than ending up insufficiently aligned on some other version of OSX toolchain that parses it the other way. Also, I do not see any complaints about .align 16 on -m64... maybe it actually aligns to 1<<16 without complaining? magnum
