gcc takes full advantage by using a single 32-bit load,
resulting in a whole bunch of unaligned access traps.
You can see the generated assembler with "make block-sha1/sha1.s" and
reading the resulting sha1.s file in the current working directory
(oops). I don't have an alpha cross-compiler installed or access to
an alpha to check for myself.

Subject: Makefile: fix location of listing produced by "make subdir/foo.s"
When I invoke "make block-sha1/sha1.s", 'make' runs $(CC) -S without
specifying where it should put its output and the output ends up in
Add an -o option to the .s rule to fix this. We were already doing
that for most compiler invocations but had forgotten it for the
