Since Dalibor was out of town when I sent original message, I'd like to
resend with more detailed info for this issue.

I checked kaffe 0.8.3, and noticed even for jit rather than jit3, 'ALIGN'
macro (whose name was changed later to 'ALIGN_CODEPC' to be compiled on
OpenBSD) has defined but not used. So I think both {jit,jit3}/funcs.c should
be modified not to include this macro.

No more info needed. I will make some patches later for this.
