Actually it applies to certain architectures (ie 32bit ones that align
64bit integer arguments).  Since netbsd uses the same kernel layout
for all architectures it always applies to netbsd.

Since the files are built separately from any build, the alignment
rule needs to be enabled/disabled from the control file.

Since, for example, any sparc system will need it (and probably ppc)
checking for SYS_ isn't really right.
