I'm thinking that the problem is that in _gpgrt_lock_t the second
element ends up being 64 bit aligned (a long of padding after vers)
giving a total sizeof=32 and no such alignment happens for
gpgrt_lock_t so sizeof=28.  I added a printf before the assert and it
reported those two exact different sizes, so that supports the theory.

typedef struct
  long _vers;
  union {
    volatile char _priv[24];
    long _x_align;
    long *_xp_align;
  } u;
} gpgrt_lock_t;

typedef struct
  long vers;
  union {
    pthread_mutex_t mtx;
    long *dummy;
  } u;
} _gpgrt_lock_t;

I just tested on Solaris 10 Sparc and the following patch resolves the
problem.  I'm not sure if this patch is appropriate for all platforms
or only Sparc.  If someone else has the cycles to pass this fix
upstream that would be great.
(Also note I did NOT take out the patch from
patches/patch-src_estream.c when testing this fix... it seemed
unrelated to the assert failure.)
