As you are using SPARC, it may be that someone has changed and/or
incorrectly compiled something so that a variable is being read using
the wrong byte alignment. ARM also has byte alignment constraints.
Try running 'gdb --args /usr/local/sbin/clamd --debug' or use an
equivalent dbx command.
This should help track down the issue.
On x86, there are only performance hits if the alignment is wrong so x86
developers rarely know that they have messed up the alignment because
you don't even get a compiler warning. One reason why developers should
use SPARC and ARM in addition to x86 for testing.
