4.3. Big Endian

Though the source is build to work with big endian machines, I didn't get any reports about actually using it. It would be interesting if it's actually working or not. You will probably need an IrDA dongle or something to test it.

i386 and alpha are little endian, arm can choose (but the NetWinder has been wired as a little endian machine). m68k, sparc and ppc are big-endian! mips can choose I think. If unsure, look in /usr/src/linux/asm/byteorder.h and check if it includes linux/byteorder/big_endian.h or linux/byteorder/little_endian.h .
