I'd like to pose the question of why GnuPG should use the non-standard aligned attribute anyway, when to the best of my knowledge, the same functionality is supported in C11 with the alignas operator. Perhaps this was just overlooked? If support for pre-C11 GCC is a concern, maybe a wrapper macro could choose whichever method is supported.

I hope this can be considered as a solution.
