Comment (by gbburkhardt):

 I pulled a snapshot from the repository last night, and ran the test
 suite.  A different error occurred (see attachment "numpy-svn-2.23.09".
 It looks like it went past the code in which the original error occurred,
 and the new one is more straight forward.  The Sparc processor requires
 8-byte memory alignment for writing a double, and the address in the
 pointer is only 4-byte aligned.  It looks like the function that's
 allocating the memory is deep inside Python.
