      Description

      If we're going to support Sparc, MIPS or big-endian ARM, we'll need to do some testing on big endian systems.

      One shortcut is to use OS X with Rosetta installed: with the right tools installed, a gcc flag builds for PowerPC on an x86 host without it even being a cross-compile. With current Xcode 4, a hack is required to re-enable PowerPC builds.

      The current build doesn't get very far: some of the struct size assumptions in verify_build.h fail.
