I don't understand why you consider this to be a problem.  After all,
x86 has stronger (32-bit) alignment requirements, so m68k is actually
less likely to break.

On x86 you can make unaligned access to memory.
Alignment is a nice to have for performance.

But on m68k you MUST align or you get a SIGBUS.
