nmap on sparc/linux
From: Tom Duffy <tduffy () sun com>

I tried to run nmap on a gentoo sparc64/linux box (blade 2000 with 2
Cheetah+ procs) and got a bus error.  I am trying to debug what
happened, but am hitting a brick wall. I can only think the EXTRACT_LONG
macro is b0rken (compiler bug? -- using gcc 3.2.1) on sparc/linux.

Here is the error I am getting:

Any thoughts?  Would any other debugging info help fix this problem?
