    initial v1  
    11I see: "ppc64le is a pure little-endian mode that has been introduced with the POWER8 as the prime target", according to Wikipedia.
    22
    3 What does "little-endian mode" mean? Is it perhaps the case that the configuration script mistakenly believes that the machine is big-endian? My group cohomology spkg, which uses meataxe, used to work both on big- and little-endian machines, but if there is an error in the configuration, then of course errors can't be avoided.
