-faligned-new does not work under Travis with clang #1478
It was discovered in #� that the -faligned-new flag causes errors when compiling Verilated code under Travis CI using clang. This should have been detected and dealt with via a test for this behavior in configure, but configure did not observe the same behavior.
For the time being, a band-aid has been applied to configure.ac turn off this flag when compiling with clang under Travis:
This resolves the Travis breakage but allows for the same issue to crop up on similar systems. Ultimately, we should understand why configure doesn't catch this behavior with Travis + clang so that the configure test can be improved and the band-aid can be removed.
