Hi Oliver, hi Eric,

after getting my hands on a Sparc machine myself, I fixed the _sending_
part of the network plugin to use `memcpy' to get around alignment
issues. I didn't have time to take care of the receiving part yet, but
I'll do that before releasing 4.2.5.

While I was at it I found that there was an endian-issue when sending
gauge values, such as the battery voltage or the system load.

The changes have been merged into the following branches of the Git
I'd appreciate it if you could give them a try. Especially the changes
to the configure script are, uhm, interesting, due to m4.. :/


P. S.: If you don't want to get involved with Git you can simply
       download a daily snapshot from Sebastian's site,
       <http://snapshots.tokkee.org/collectd/>. I've just pushed the
       changes, so you should probably wait for 2008-02-29 version.
