Structure alignment under AIX 4.3.1

	For historical reasons, the PowerOpen AIX ABI only requires word
alignment for doubles while requiring doubleword alignment for 64-bit
integers.  If the double is the first field in a struct, the struct is
doubleword aligned although the internal fields are word aligned.  It's
just a big, unfortunate mess.
