64-bit little-endian tends to "happen to work" much more often than
big-endian.  It's one of the reasons why I've always believed that
Little is the One True Endian.  ;-)

Anyway, the best solution to this problem is to create proper record
types, create proper var_decls, and call the data output routines in
final.c and varasm.c.  Instead of what we do at the moment, which is 
to emit each data element by hand.
