So the problem is that binutils doesn't/can't support alignment 
directives (.align) for win32 targets? If this is the case it would 
probibly be better to tweak libjava/configure.in so that hash 
synchronization is disabled for win32. AFAIK thats the only thing in 
libgcj that has the 8-byte alignment requirement.
