tcpdump tends to use improperly aligned accesses. I noticed a while
back that it core'd on every ARP reply packet that it saw.

Defining `-DLBL_ALIGN' made it go away, but I neglected to look further
into it, especially since I was not sure why taking care of alignment
would be something that takes on a special meaning within LBL...
