My apologies. I saw the code and assumed we had gone ahead with the uniform
array alignment idea. Rather, that was done back in August:
2000-08-16 Andrew Haley <firstname.lastname@example.org>
* typeck.c (build_java_array_type): Rewrite code to do array
alignment. Take into account back-end macros when aligning array
data. Remove setting of TYPE_USER_ALIGN; Java doesn't allow the
user to set alignment. Fixes gcj/252 and 160.
I'm puzzled that it didn't break until recently. It should never have worked at
