Does that take special hardware?   Is it a jumper on the chip or a mode bit 
the software can set/reset?

What's available in the way of hardware and/or OS/distro that supports BIG 
endian mode?

I'd like to have a big endian system or three just to verify that things like 
gpsd and ntpsec work correctly.

I have a couple of Mac Minis.  On 2 of them, the firmware lies about the clock 
frequency.  I can get Open Firmware to patch it by hand, but can't save the 
patch and apply it automatically on boot.  And I haven't built kernels so I 
can't yet do the equivalent patch there.  Maybe one of these days...

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
