In my opinion, something like the code you posted would be ok... If
someone has an assembler that does not support .p2align nor .balign, he
can add another test in configure later.

But this is just my opinion, and I am not the maintainer of that code...
Let's what Michael and the other experts say.

Anyway, I see that John Dalgliesh just posted a patch following a
different approach...
I am going to test it asap
