-U_LITTLE_ENDIAN is not going to help, because those crazy platform 
define this anyway... for one reason or another, this gets in the way of 
those files, and causes the problem I mentioned. We have seen this 
already with MiniX, you remember it?

Roman, maybe we should introduce some big macro instead ;)

In any case, I agree this is my problem, there is nothing wrong in the 
JDK code, I just think it would be more portable with this refactored a bit.
