[Mono-devel-list] Snapshot builds: SparcV9 Solaris 9

These are just warnings.... and I think unnecessary noise... looking at the
numbers in this and the bugzilla report referred to in Zoltans' reply I
any cast from (char *) to something which requires proper alignment seems
to generate the warning from gcc - there are lots of these. I think you
just have to ignore them (note Sun's Forte compiler which is what I use
generates quite a few warnings too - but not for these casts).

I think you just ignore the warnings (or adjust the options to
remove whatever generates them).  Of maybe versions of gcc matter
here (I don't have it at the moment myself).

There is a 2nd issue that socket-io.c doesn't build as is on Solaris 8 - at
least for me - I attach some diffs that make it compile for me but I'd
like some confirmation these are OK for all platforms before commiting
