After installing 20020526-1.6A snapshot, I tried to compile some packages,
since NetBSD/sparc binary was not executed. Some packages (xfig, lyx) needed
simple modification to prevent gcc internal compile error 'emit_move_insn_1' 
the compilation of some packages produced unexecutable binaries.
I think this problem is sparc64-specific, since the compilation of
the same package on i386 or alpha doesn't make internal compile error
or alignemnt error.

For example, when I run olvwm and mosaic, I got console error message and
the program stopped with bus error.

  00000:00800005 dsfar=ffffffff:ffffb8ac isfsr=00000000:00000000 pc=41097788

Is there any possible way to escape this error ?
