When a character or mobile is created, you add there alignment (divide
by 10 so it doesn't get too high) into the global align.  When they are
taken out of the game, you adjust align again to account for it.

For instance:

  // player enters
  GlobalAlignment += GET_ALIGNMENT(ch) / 10;

  // player leaves
  GlobalAlignment -= GET_ALIGNEMNT(ch) / 10;

Essentially, if the players alignment is 1000, they add 100 to the
GlobalAlignment, and 100 is subtracted when they leave.  If they have
a negative alignemnt, say -1000, they add -100 to the global align
(adding a negative is the same as subtracting), and when they leave,
they subtract -100 (subtracting a negative [eg, a double negative, as
in English] is the same as adding).
