Unfortunately my first reaction to this is just not to build for sparc,
and to refer you to prboom, which is actively maintained and has had
some fixes for sparc recently. However, I would like to get lxdoom up
and running properly, so I ask for help: it looks like lxdoom has alignment
problems. If someone could refer me to documents about typical alignment
issues and how to resolve them (particularly wrt sparc), or would look over
lxdoom itself (it generates several alignment warnings on sparc when built),
I'd be greatly indebted.

CC me on replies, please.
