System: NetBSD dr-evil 1.4Z NetBSD 1.4Z (DR-EVIL) #59: Fri Jun 2 09:21:18 PDT 2000 thorpej@dr-evil:/u1/netbsd/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/DR-EVIL i386

	The following is a list of network protocols and other systems
	which do not use CMSG_SPACE(), CMSG_LEN(), and CMSG_DATA()
	properly, thus having incorrect alignment on systems with
	alignment constraints > 4 bytes (e.g. LP64 systems).

	netccitt -- not in wide use

	netiso -- important to fix; this is used for backbone routing

	netbsd32 -- use is in COMPAT_OLDSOCK section.  I'm not really
	sure what the intent here is, so it is listed as a potential
	problem spot for someone else to review.
