Comment(by erikd):

 I'll attach my latest version of this patch.

 With this patch it now compiles, but I'm still not sure its correct. The
 darwin_HOST_OS code path has a machoGetMisalignment() function call and
 I'm not sure if there shouldn't be an elfGetMisalignment code path.

 With this patch, it now compiles, but validate fails on the second stage
 compiling the vector library:

 Segmentation fault
 make[1]: *** [libraries/vector/dist-
 install/build/Data/Vector/Fusion/Stream/Monadic.o] Error 139
