Ok, but our default compiler thinks so and fails on an important part
of pkgsrc infrastructure. But this works on NetBSD current i386:

export CFLAGS=-fno-strict-aliasing 

I will try to check the gcc bug lists and otherwise create a small test
example to get this resolved in gcc. Otherwise this will hit us again.
I stumbled over this kind of problem before and suitable aligning shorts
and ints made all compilers happy. But I apologize for too quickly
blaiming the code. Anyway, using -fno-strict-aliasing somewhere in the
Makefiles for gcc solves this problem. 

Have a nice day,
