Have you read comment #8 in the bug report where Paul Brook tells you 
how to get exactly the behavior you desire as well as the reason that 
things are the way they are?

I know it's fun to attack the FSF, but they really have nothing to do 
with deciding which the stack alignment will be used for a particular ABI.
