Hmmmm, well, it does seem to fix it in the limited sense that the
alignment of the .bss section in two_file_shared_2_test is 8, whereas
you indicated that it was previously 4.  That is, I suspect that now
something else is failing.

Since I don't have easy access to a SPARC system, how does the new
binary fail?
