There must be deeper assumptions about byte order in the program,
possibly inside Cdraw.

I think the easiest way to address this is to get it working on
linuxppc first - then we have the O/S and the endianness as
two different variables. I'd be happy to do this if I could
borrow a fast quad pro G5 or similar for a week or two. Sadly my
tame Mac dealer has since changed hands.
