    The maximum alignment on hpux is 4k bytes. This was implemented in
    2004 in the PA backend for hpux. Prior to that, the default for
    MAX_OFILE_ALIGNMENT (BIGGEST_ALIGNMENT) was in effect for all PA
    targets. It looks like Carlos added the define to elfos.h in November
    2006. So unless this was back ported, 4.2.0 would be the first gcc
    release to support large alignments on linux.
