Despite the pessimism in the code, PPC Skia seems to be ~workingfor
Firefox on PPC and accepting big-endian patches.
FreeBSD seems to patch the acknowledgement out ;-)
in its SkUserConfig.h
Any objections with following Firefox's approach and going with this ?
I anticipate it works better than advertised.
