Hi Yoshiki,

Thanks for inquiring about Smallapack.

This problem has been solved in 2011 as the post tells.
Moreover, it was about alignment of squeak objects that was on multiple of
4 on SqueakV3 memory.
Spur is 8 byte aligned, so the problem would have also vanished without any
patch for those being patient :)

For the 15 arguments limit, Smallapack comes with it's own compiler, so
it's a non issue.
Maybe I should make the documentation more clear on

Unfortunately, there's no Sparse Matrix representation in Lapack.
If you know of a good package for that, it could be integrated.

If you have other questions, don't hesitate to ask.
