Description Gustavo Luiz Duarte 2014-04-02 20:15:50 UTC
Description of problem:
The new little-endian 64-bit PowerPC platform (powerpc64le-linux) is not currently supported by NSPR.  The changes required to add support are:

- Update config.guess / config.sub to current GNU config upstream versions
- Correctly set endian macros in pr/include/md/_linux.cfg

Here is a patch written by Ulrich Weigand that does that and has been merged into mozilla-central.

Can we please get Ulrich's patch included in Rawhide?
