Unaligned access to packed structs on ppc405

I am cross-compiling on GCC 3.4.1 for the PowerPC 405, which can handle 
unaligned accesses in hardware.
Whenever I am accessing members of a packed bit-struct by pointer, the 
compiler produces byte accesses, instead of 4-byte acceses.
I've tried to use |-mstrict-align but to no avail.
Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks in advance,
