Hi, Thomas, All!

Thanks, I originally based this on 2012.08 release and taught myself by manual (http://www.buildroot.net/downloads/manual/manual.html#patch-policy). I did not closely follow the mailing list. I'll fix this.

I do recall that there were, for zeromq-2.2.0, though I'm not able to tell what went wrong back then. Hence two versions were tried: first the more recent, then 5.1.118-1~dfsg. Modifications in those two patches are the same, so it's no use to have two files. I'll check more closely if zeromq-2.2.0 can be made to work with the recent version of openpgm.

Is there a way to determine if target architecture has unaligned pointers or aligned pointers?

Not as far as I know.

Thanks, will be fixed.

Yes, I will do that. As Yann has mentioned, it's needed because the configure.ac has been patched.

Well, for that matter, these tests too may not be valid for all the target architectures. Could this somehow be determined in advance or?.. OK, I think I know the answer. Is it OK to leave them as is? An alternative would be to try to prompt the user in Kconfig.

No. I will try. Thanks.
