Take a look here:

As has been mentioned before, there is a whole shedload of packages that 
have similar issues - I have seen literally thousands of alignment 
faults get reported (I have the alignment set to fix+warn on my armv5tel 
builders) in various packages during build and test stages. Once upon a 
time I planned to collate the data and get the issue reported to all 
upstream maintainers, but that is a mammoth task just to report, let 
alone fix, and I have very little faith there is enough will among the 
developers to fix all the affected packages and ensure they write code 
that isn't affected by this problem going forward.
