Hi Alan,

Sorry for taking so long over this.  I was hoping we could find the
ultimate alias target and apply block placement to that, but AFAICS
we never really know which _decl_ is the alias target.  We only what
its name is.

So FWIW I agree that this is the best fix.  Thanks for the fix,
and sorry for the runaround.

Richard
