No, it wasn't me. Building on big endian architectures was broken by
user: Jeff Sparkes <jsparkes(a)gmail.com>

summary: Use G_BIG_ENDIAN instead of WORDS_BIGENDIAN.
Specifically, src/lisp-union.h requires WORDS_BIGENDIAN to layout a
Lisp object properly, which is the cause of the breakage I am seeing
now. It looks like somebody merged a GTK branch into master, is that
what I'm seeing? Because this commit is from going on 8 years ago.
A grep shows that there are more instances of WORDS_BIGENDIAN in
src/md5.c, src/glyphs-x.c, and src/redisplay-x.c.
Was that merge supposed to make building with either gtk2 or gtk3
work? I get build failures with both. I'm wondering if that is
expected or not. Let me know if it is not expected and I will provide
Yes, it was. Building on GTK2 and GTK3 work with warnings but without
problems for me. Please give details if it doesn’t work for you.
I have undone Jeff’s change to config.h.in, and now WORS_BIGENDIAN is
available again. Thanks for reporting this!
