hai cris,
 There is no equivalent flag in gcc, for the -misalign flag provided
 by the sun compiler. When the program is complied with "-misalign"
 flag , a __misalign_trap_handler is invoked, whenever a misalignment
 occurs. It handles by making loads byte by byte. The samething can
 be done for gcc also. Currently i think gcc doesn't have an option 
 to do this.
